Does anyone use it? Pros/cons versus Gnome 2 or Unity?

I already triple boot BeOs, Windows 3.0, and a BSD variant on the radio inside my fingernail.

Not really used unity yet. Gnome is great, so long as you've installed the correct drivers for your graphics card. You can get some lovely visual effects with compiz installed too (wobbly windows and stuff like that)

I'm a Unix/Linux sysadmin, so the command line is my friend. (Stare at it all day at work)

When I say gnome is great, I meant gnome shell/3 btw!

Yeah, much better.

Right now this all really depends on what is available that will support your architecture. My desktop is a beautiful, streamlined Linux beast, but my very new laptop is a bit too advanced right now (for just one example, the 64-bit support is buggy as hell and doesn't seem to take full advantage of all 121 gigawatts of RAM.)

Exactly, but now that Ubuntu 11.10 is no longer a beta release, all of my 64-bit woes are history.

My desktop is a 64 bit desktop so i installed the 64 bit version of ArchLinux .so In the end i couldn't boot my computer becuase of the fact the 32 bit libraries and the 64 bit programs were conflicting. but truly in the end I installed the 32 bit ArchLinux ISO :).

If you don't understand the difference between a DE and a distro, no wonder you couldn't get Arch to work.
