You are aware, I trust, that while Unity will be the default desktop, you can always use classic gnome, gnome shell, KDE (with Kubuntu), lxde (with Lubuntu), xfce (with Xubuntu), or literally dozens of unofficial derivatives such as Mint (see one list at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DerivativeTeam/Derivatives ).

Nobody's twisting your arm here like certain competitors. It's open source. We have *choices*! Use whatever you like. ;-)
