Once I have apps open in workspaces, I seldom use the pager, though. My use of Gnome Shell with Dash-to-Dock is the same as Unity: Click an icon in the dock to switch. Gnome Shell does allow opening, via middle-click, of a new app in a new workspace, eliminating the need to manually move to the new workspace first. (At least through 3.10. It seems to be gone in 3.12.)
I disable hot corners, tiling, etc., in Unity. I don't use compositing elsewhere if I can disable it.
It seems to be trying to separate itself from Linux as much as possible even though obviously it still is Linux.
When you go to download Ubuntu it takes you to a donation page and the download does NOT start automatically. You have to scroll to bottom and press the text link to download. This just feels very cheap and not the way to ask for donations. The download should of already started by the time the donation page is showed not the other way around.
However, it is recommended to use torrents to download the ISO - to ensure not only a faster download, but also the integrity of the downloaded ISO.
Official link to torrents : http://www.ubuntu.com/download/alternative-downloads (no donation links there )
Well, maybe, But, there is an equally inappropriate, widespread, and rather romanticized feeling that making and supporting FOSS products ought to be strictly a charity, never a business, and that FOSS users are entitled to gratis products.When you go to download Ubuntu it takes you to a donation page and the download does NOT start automatically.

Works to well, so you forget how to fix things. I have get addicted to Unity.
Ubuntu 14.04LTS 64bit, 14.04 Lubuntu 32-bit on eeePCs and OSX on a G4 800MHz iMac (iLamp). I think I have an W7 on one of my Virtualbox machine under 14.04LTS?
I truly love Ubuntu!!!!!!!!!!!!! One thing I'm not liking is the guest account and disabling it is like tryign to pass a law through Congress!!!!! As an open-source OS, why have the option of a guest account even installed? Basically, whatever account you setup when you install Ubuntu, should be the ONLY one and if you need any, you setup another user account. This gueast account feature stops many of people I know from switching over to Ubuntu. So, after many version, why do you guys keep this when you install your OS? Why is it so hard to remove guest user? I would like to see work arounds for iTunes and other windows ran programs. Other than that, it's not enough to go back to windows in my opinion.....
The main thing I dislike about Ubuntu is that when I open an application I am going to use in a moment, but not exactly right now, the new window opens over what I'm doing right now, interrupting my work, which is a nightmare for a time-pressed multi-tasker. Some applications take a little time to open. If I am already doing something, I want the new application to open in the background so it is ready at a click to be used when I want it... and not before!
To turn it off there is an option in ubuntu tweak, which I use use anyways to keep my system clean and for the settings.
Oh! One more thing guest account does keep prying visitor eyes from your personal files...like comprimising photos, videos, music etc...

For better System Stability and Security avoid 3rd party programs & apps where you can; and only use those you really need.
I dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 HP and my last "BSOD" was in April 2012!!!
