Re: With 12.10 are we still stuck with the silly unity interface?
Not "everyone" will enjoy it. Not "everyone" likes Windows 7's desktop, or Unity, or Gnome 3, or Gnome 2, or KDE. That's why there are so many different desktops.

It's not just for people who use the keyboard. I only use the keyboard for Unity's dash searching. Everything else I use the mouse.
I like the good integrated search in the dash, the ability to drag and drop files to programs, the consistent indicators and simple notifications, and the way it stays out of the way and gives me maximum screen space. I tried Gnome 3 a while back and it actually felt claustraphobic.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
