You are among the group that criticise Unity from just a partisan viewpoint.

Shiny new things are great. However, they should never come at the expense of legacy interfaces and it should always be trivial to completely revert.
Unity is a fine idiots desktop. However until Metro is the norm it should not be the Ubuntu default. Otherwise you violate the principle of "consistency" in HID. That principle doesn't just mean subjecting everyone to vi.

You have partisan views. Even if Unity came with a free 1936 Chateau Margaux bottle of wine, you would still complain that Unity comes with an "old" wine.

I know, right? And it's completely untrue, Ubuntu 12.04 ships wine 1.4, which is as new as wine gets!

I run Unity on our home machine and wife and kids have never complained, not even when I made the switch, they quickly adopted without any fuzz. But then again we might be idiots...
