    Yeah, it surely can't match the ageless GNOME 3 UX design.

    Tried it in Virtualbox. Nice, liked the 3d windows however it should be possible to set the launcher behind windows and not only slide to the side. Also didn't find the color settings for the launcher but it was probably me.
    Also had a quick look at cinnamon but it has like gnome3 more top menubars compared to unity?

    How were the windows set to 3D?
    If you want something as easy as Unity, than Budgie might be your cup of tea. Cinnamon is user-friendly but it's way more advanced in terms of configuration than Unity and Budgie.

    I would like that as well 'cause I want to give Unity 8 a try on something else than Ubuntu (I'm a Solus user).

    I find Unity quite useful and functional.

    I personally like much more the Unity 8 menu, just because it has categories (alphabetical it seems, maybe more).

    I personally always liked the Unity general design but I never used it beyond some testing in VMs because I hate Ubuntu.

    This is very very good. I like where this is going. I also approve Qt.

Not having tried it, I don't know how it compares to my favorite desktop, Plasma, but it definitely looks more friendly to new users than GNOME 3. I hope UBports will be able to maintain it though—I imagine it's a pretty large codebase.
    Let's be fair, it's not hard to beat Gnome 3...
