What things don't you like on the pure Ubuntu base? Right now, if I'd go for Unity I'd just use Ubuntu. It's a bit duct taped together on Arch Linux so I'm not staying on that with Unity

It's been a while since I went distro-hopping but over the weekend I wiped my Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon installation and replaced it with Arch Linux. I'll probably return to an Ubuntu base, but decided I'd go with Arch Linux for now to try the latest versions of various desktop environments
