Although I prefer Linux to Windows at this point in time, I do agree that the title is exagerated. I tried and really don't like "metro" on my desktop, and I do prefer Unity if those were my only two choices. Thank god they're not!
I really wish "Linux advocates" had a more realistic and tempered way of presenting things. This over-the-top "advertising" is really creepy. For instance, the "amazon search" thing has raised an uproar of discontent directed at Canonical. That Mr. Wallen is saying it's a wonderful "feature" is a dubious decision. I don't mind an occasional "lipstick on a pig", but this article is looking to pick a fight (or a flame war).
Such utopic presentations aren't useful as they leave the new user arriving on Linux wondering where the hell is that supposed utopia. I'm not saying the author is not entitled to his opionion, but temperance in his presentation would be a good pratice.
