Let's not give in to that war, gave up on KDE long ago for various
obnoxious features, never liked Kubuntu to start due to it's K* suite of
stuff and other default packages, but did give it a whorl as KDE on top
of Ubuntu install. I'd say it works for some but not for the people who
have generally liked Gnome.

So yes if you dislike unity and you've never tried KDE I do suggest to
give it a shot.

Meanwhile, I really enjoy Unity - so in the same spirit, if you've never tried it, give it a shot.  

simple, clean, intuitive? more native 32bit/64bit integration? intuitive search/launch for files, applications, music? automatic external monitor configuration? out-of-the-box tablet support with onscreen keyboard for login?  It's not perfect, but I like seeing innovation.  don't like it? linux has always had variety

Agreed, I upgraded over the weekend and I really like the new interface. It seems a bit snappier
as well. I especially like putting the app menus into the overhead panel which gives your apps a
bit more vertical space.
