Well, it's uncommon to me because I don't recall hearing of it before. But
then again I have been out of the game for a few years now.

Okay. I guess that shows how long I've been out of the game, but What is
Unity? From what I can gather it seems to be a display environment/window
manager ala KDE/Gnome/XFCE/etc... but if is, why is it so hated? What was
it intended to do that it's apparently not doing?
Thanks for the info!
