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.
