Sorry, there is a storm here and an attempt to send to draft, sent to the list. I complete my reply below:

Great work all. It's like a blend of windows, mac, and gnome in
one. I can't wait to update and see all the improvements. Also is
there a general discussion list?

Change (progress) is hard. Unity is different from the Ubuntu we know. I am, however, astounded by the anti-Unity anger expressed on this list.I too am a fossil. I started doing IBM 360 assembler in the late 60's. I saw a lot of change that was NOT innovative. If made to use it, I usually walked.
I've been a software developer for over 30 years---from the early IBM mainframes and DEC Minis, through Macs and PCs, to the Cloud, iOS, and Android. Not all innovation has been successful, but much of it has. I do know that if I had the same reaction to change as the Unity haters, I would not still be employed.
Anyway, one can still log on in Ubuntu Classic mode if one doesn't wish to learn something new.
So, in your opinion, anyone who has issues with Unity is publicly confessing that they don't wish to learn something new.
You make the same erroneous assumptions that the decision makers at Ubuntu make. I repeat what I said above: not all change is innovative.
What has irritated me is the broken promises. I believed the original hype about the meaning of the word "Ubuntu" and how it was to be a platform that was usable throughout the third world. That said to me that is was to remain accessible to users of older/smaller machines.
Now we see in a single leap a need for the latest and best in hardware which is a broken promise, implied if not explicit. Personally, I have no need for ...
To use your word: I am "astounded" that anyone believes Unity is more useful than Gnome 2. Notice, I said "useful". Unity is definitely full enough of flash, frills and grace notes to delight the toy lovers, but those of us with limited resources or who need a machine to work with will probably opt out. BTW, my attempt to install Unity told me that my hardware was inadequate, by which it meant: you have a current nVidea card...tough sh*t.
