It isn't that Unity was so terrible an interface (it's basically an integrated Docky), it's that it was introduced too early and made part of an LTS distribution before it was ready for Prime Time.
The waffling from Rhythmbox to Banshee and back certainly didn't help any, either.
I did try Unity earlier this year, it came preinstalled on a refurbished machine I bought. I actually liked it, which I kept for about 3 months or so before installing a different distro. I had also been trying out Gnome 3 before trying Unity, so that may have prepared me for it!
