Mainly because I think it is better than any of the default desktops, yet Mint has a better community than Ubuntu, but let's not get into that, it is not my intention to start a flame war, it is simply my personal choice.
As to the OP's question, you just open the package manager, locate unity, and mark it for installation. Next time you boot you choose it in the session menu in mdm and make it the default session.
You can then (if you want) go back into the package manager and mark Cinnamon (or other desktops you don't want) for removal.
It couldn't be easier than that, especially if you already have Mint installed and not Ubuntu.
I've installed Unity on my Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon but it doesn't work because it is missing in MDM.
sudo apt-get install mdm
sudo dpkg-reconfigure mdm
