Downloaded Ubuntu rather than Xubuntu

Downloaded Ubuntu rather than Xubuntu, by mistake. Installed it anyway. Who thought Unity was a good idea?

My phone is 854x480 and a touch screen. Could be pretty nice in an application like that.

I could see it making sense on a tiny screen, but on a 26" 1920x1200 it was kinda like using the Mac with multiple monitors. I mean, the menu bar made sense back in the days of 320x240, but in 2011?

I got the idea it was geared toward a touch interface. It didn't seem very intuitive for a mouse driven interface. It also sort of reminds me of a gnome/droid mashup for some reason. I just went back to 10.04 again... I had no need for new eye candy.
