I recently upgraded to unity interface as part of upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04. I liked everything in the new ubuntu version except the unity interface. Even after spending 3-4 full days with Unity what I can say is I did not like it at all. I hate to downgrade/switch to gnome since I feel I am not supporting unity and the philosophy of using always the best.
This is what I found about Unity:
- its fancy but not does not add any value ( at its current state )
- harder to perform the operations compared to gnome
- very less customizable (more like its forced on me, can not change much)
- global ( shared ) menus are bad for mouse users since mouse has to travel long distances
Am I missing anything ? Is the unity in 11.04 is very limited and has great plans in future ?
