It's pretty! Seriously, I'm clearly weird as the rest of the internet seems to hate it. But I like the font, I like the total lack of clutter with no dock/launcher.
The social media plugin is pretty handy so I don't have to keep Facebook open all the time.
About the only thing that I've still to get used to after a month on Fedora 19 is the clock being in the top-middle of the screen, rather than the top-right which I'm used to in Ubuntu.
Then again, I like Unity, so... I'm weird!
