I finally got around to upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04, and finally got to see why people got so worked up about Unity. Maybe it's great for new users but for me, no thanks. I like the idea of the menu bar at the top of the screen - that was a cool feature from the old Apple Macintosh world, but the big buttons and search box et al - not for me. Switched back to Gnome classic quick-spot.
Apparently Linux Mint is where it's at these days.
