Personally, I like Unity. I never quite got what exactly it was about Unity that made sooo many others get wedgies! If the primary objection was the Launcher Bar, well, all I have to say is 'too bloody bad'. In my own case, I have rather poor eyesight and found the Launcher Bar to be extremely helpful. Besides, you could always login with Ubuntu Classic and not have said Launcher. For the most, I think that the 'complainers' are simply never going to be satisfied until the day when all Linux desktops look exactly like Windows, and function exactly the same way.
