Re: Unity menus
I absolutely hate the switch from Unity to Gnome. The wasted space with the window titles, the added gnomey application menu that doesn't do anything, the clock in the middle of the top bar for... reasons. It took me about a month to get used to Unity in the first place, and from that point on it's just been right.
I guess if you run massive screens with 30 windows on then it could be annoying, but I work on a laptop, mostly using the keyboard. There's very little reason not to have everything maximised.
