Re: [PLUG] I have had time to consider and may now comfortably hate Unity.

I've been using Debian/Fluxbox for years now.  I'm very happy with it
because it mostly stays out of my way.
Key features:
 - window overlapping
 - scroll wheel on background to change virt desktops
 - right click on background for full debian menu (with personal
favorites on the first list)

I use separate virtual desktops for Iceweasel, Claws Mail, and Pidgin,
and then have ~7 more filled with RXVT windows.

I've heard of other similar options, like ION, but I've never felt
compelled to try them.

+1 for Fluxbox, though I haven't installed it in years.  Especially if you want something other than the Windows or OS X paradigm.  I have used and liked AfterStep as well.
