It seems no one (at least no one with a tech background) likes Unity.
Unity is very good, but its easy to use rather than a geek's power tool. Its where Ubuntu wants to be.
I have switched one PC to Fedora XFCE. Less works out of the box (for example I had to install avahi and another package when I needed zeroconf) but its a minutes work if you know what you are doing. The software installer is also less user friendly (I mean less user friendly that synaptic, let alone Ubuntu Software Centre).
On the other hand its configurable, stuff you do not need is less likely to be installed by default, updates are faster (it downloads deltas of updates), and most packages are more up to date.
