Linux "Ubuntu, once the darling of desktop Linux and the overwhelmingly popular choice for newcomers, may soon lose that role to Mint." I switched to Mint KDE, and have no intention of going back. By the way, KDE4 is finally good (don't hit me, Aaron) - fast, fluid, stable, pretty, and thanks to its versatility, a joy to use after a few hours of tweaking. Just... Please, unify Plasma and the regular widget style. This is insanity.

There are a lot of rational reasons to hate Unity


I can't think of any. "I don't like it", "It doesn't work the way I want" etc etc are perfectly good reasons but also very subjective.

especially on low end machines


So don't run it on low end machines. It wasn't designed to run on those, we have Xubuntu and Lubuntu for that.

Performance is subjective?

But it was, until they added Unity (and subsequently got rid of the netbook version). Sure I could try Xubuntu or Lubuntu but Mint runs fine on my Atom 330/2GB system so I'm not going back.
