I tried the same thing a few weeks back when I saw EOS mentioned on this 
list.  Loved it immediately and have now switched all my Linux 
workstations (2 desktops and a laptop) over to it.

I just liked that it was a 'prettier' Ubuntu, so it has the familiarity 
of Ubuntu (particularly apt and software centre), but without crud like 
Unity.  I know there's other ways to do away with Unity, but their 
integration of plank and a few of the apps they have created/used just 
makes it an overall pleasant experience to use Elementary.

Can't recommend it highly enough.
