Jono Bacon has put up a tour of the Ubuntu 11.10 desktop for those who would like to see what it is going to look like. "As you can see, Unity provides a lot of workable space and the shell just wraps around the app in the most minimal way possible to give you as much space as possible for the app. You can also see that when maximized the window buttons and menus are not shown; they only appear if you hover the window title with the mouse. This actually makes the desktop feel much nicer and less cluttered."
