Re: Do you want Unity by default?
I'll wait and see.
I really do like the current Gnome 2.x interface, but with Gnome Shell on the way, that interface may not exist much longer. Sure, there will be a fork and/or some form of legacy support, but Gnome will move on and won't focus all of their attention on it anymore.
I look at it this way, Unity cannot possibly be any worse than Gnome Shell. It just can't. It could be nothing but a picture of Hitler that, when you press a certain key combo, it's eyes flash, and it would be better than Gnome Shell...
