Just installed Ubuntu again after dodging the Linux scene for years, and I've got to say while Unity has improved by leaps and bounds since the last time I used it (Which was when it first launched... ugh) it's still not my cup of tea. But man, Ubuntu is still fantastic in its ease of use. Got Cairo-dock up and running in no time and I love it. Just makes the whole experience that much better for me, pesonally. Still have a lot of fiddling round to do, and I've hopped right back in the deep end by completely removing Windows (for now at least) - and hey, so far pretty good.
