I agree that the compiz/unity desktop really is beta quality, and it will probably expose some graphics driver bugs as well, as will gnome-shell. But that's fine with me. Unity probably needs a lot of beta testers to get it in good shape, so this is a good opportunity. And natty still has the classic compiz free gnome desktop for those of us who are not interested in beta testing.
