Re: Unity, why bother?
I ran it on a Live USB this morning and I wasn't impressed either. I agree with everything you've said about the Unity interface, plus wireless wouldn't work out of the box (it does on the desktop edition), which is kind of annoying.

I'd much rather use the desktop edition on my netbook. It runs just as quickly and it can be modified in just about anyway imaginable.
I still maintain the point that designing a monolithic kernel in 1991 is a fundamental error. Be thankful you are not my student. You would not get a high grade for such a design (Andrew Tanenbaum to Linus Torvalds)
