Well, I had to give it a shot. I know this is "heresy", but I didn't find it completely horrible...after I tweaked it a bit.

Added inxi, gawk, Free driver (I had to get rid of that horrible FLGRX driver). Then I made the Terminal visible for easy access. After doing those things, the experience was much better.

Yeah, I agree. Microsoft users will love it.

I may add Gnome 3. I will see. Time to hang with the family.

Added Gnome-Shell and Ubuntu functions like Fedora. Definitely snappier than with Unity. Both Gnome and Unity give you a fair amount of eye-candy if you like that. At start up you can choose between Classic Gnome, Gnome 3 with 3D effects and Gnome 3 without effects. That also holds true for Unity. You get Unity 2D and 3D Unity.

Used these two sites for ideas to customize, in case any one is interested.
