Yeah, but then, people will reproach Ubuntu for having an uncommon interface that you have to relearn...

Well, if Ubuntu's UI team had that in mind, they could hardly mess up more...
* Windows users must definitely re-learn the interface
* OSX users must re-learn the interface as well, and as a bonus are deceived by the look (because no matter how much they want to make them look-alike, gnome does not work like OSX's UI)
* Even gnome and KDE users must re-learn the interface to some extent, since no single distro's UI works like Unity does.
