No, you're not. Gnome-Shell is a nifty interface and does its job very well. I used it for about a month.
Unity is a bit smoother on the top level interface, and i particularly like how it integrates the task bar at the top of the screen into the window frame on a maximized window. Gives me more screen real-estate. The dash is inferior to Gnome-Shell's, though.
