    Now they just need to make Unity work with actual desktops.

    It's all down to drivers I've learned, I have a GeForce 480GTX OC and it runs terribly with 3D acceleration enabled, however when I run it on-top of VM Player and go through the VM drivers performance is excellent.

    Sounds like they are taking a different aproach to what microsoft are doing with Apollo, rather than forcing a touch orientated UI on the desktop, they are forcing a UI everyone hates on the desktop, but you can use a dual core mobile phone as a desktop which you'll hate.

    I must admit I like the idea of using a touch device in a 'dock station' because if your doing work for any real amount of time you want a desk a good chair, good screens etc.

    I had a feeling you may not be, though 12.04 does look to be revamping some of the Unity features so fingers crossed.
