This is the first time I've used Unity; didn't liked the 11.04
iteration. I'm not sure whether I'll stick with Unity or revert to
"Classic" Gnome, assuming that option is still available. Must confess
I'm not spending much time on Linux these days, having switched to a
Mac for day-to-day work.

Hi :)
I only tried the 11.10 in a VM as a LiveCd.  I liked Unity for kiosks or for our public access 
machines or even most of the office workers but i agree about Gnome being much easier for even 
slightly skilled users.

If you have Ubuntu 11.10, have a look in the Appearance
dialog for the
Adwaita theme, which has blue highlighting in menus but
otherwise looks almost identical to our XP-Silver theme. It
also looks
very similar to one of the standard Mac themes.

I'll post a sample on the wiki when I get a chance (may not
be that soon).

Hi :)
I really like the Radiance theme in oranges and reds.
 It seems to be available on a lot of different distros but
not at all in Windows without considerable work.  Silver is
good and seems more familiar cross-platform-wise.
