As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion.

Something like this is extremely subjective. What you like where you use Ubuntu might not be the same for somebody else with different tastes or somebody using a different sort of machine (think dual screen desktop vs tablet). – Oli Apr 29 '11 at 21:36
If you want to chat about it we'll welcome you in the chat here or take it to Ubuntu Forums where I'd assume there are already several dozen conversations arguing about it... But this isn't the sort of question the system here is designed for. – Oli Apr 29 '11 at 21:38

Cons: The launchbar is worthless A lot slower (Feels like upgrading to Windows Vista)

Won't make me have programs using wine in the side-bar

Not as free anymore, feels like the netbook version

Cluttery (Something I might have to get used to, though)

Options on programs are in the launchbar now

Banshee (Music) is rubbish!


Nice UI

Like the new grub launcher

Conclusion: Some good stuff but just too many bad, will definitely go back until a more stable version gets released.

Hope someone could prove me wrong though!
