I recently decided I would stop resisting upgrading (was sitting on 10.10) and try out both GNOME3 and Unity. Unity feels easier to use to me, but that was after I got rid of the "outside the window" scrollbars and found a theme that wasn't orange. The keyboard shortcuts Unity exposes are really time saving, if you can train your brain to use them. I've had trouble there as I'm still using Windows 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.
Not that Unity is all rosy. There is a reoccurring lag that happens while typing in VIM that has been attributed to Unity. Hopefully that is fixed.
