Too early to tell...
Think I'll wait and see how this plays out by 14.10.
I read something (somewhere) a while ago that this move only covers the 'apps' content, (mostly useless gimics, but will probably also cover the interfaces to the new Unity and phone/tablet.
I rather like the Unity desktop, Just installed 13.10 alpha, and it seems quicker than 13.04. Next to no errors at all so far, had a quick look at the Unity8 demo and tried my hand at the Ubuntu SDK, pretty quick and seemingly easy to bash out a simple calculator.
I look forward to seeing the Unity 8 working on the desktop (and by Desktop I mean my 10' netbook screen). The Tablet/phone interface may be very pretty and all, but hardly suitable for real work or any device without a touch screen.
I do believe in Canonicals convergence vision, and I am excited by the idea of being able to one day have a smartphone that can work as a desktop when docked and allows me control of my device more than any android or iphone.
But if things don't work out, I'll just login to Xmonad, Openbox or Goomwwm, and continue, or install another distro, i.e. Arch, Gentoo, Debian aptosid, and continue.
