Unity is the sole reason why I abandoned Ubuntu.
If you were otherwise happy with Ubuntu, this seems like a case of throwing the baby out with the bath water. Why not just switch to Kubuntu/Xubuntu?
OTOH if you were thinking of switching distros anyway, Unity was probably as good an excuse as any.
I tried Kubuntu and Xubuntu, and I never really got used to either of them. Kubuntu is a bit too gadgety for me, and single click/property pages seem to be unusual. Xubuntu was way too simplistic for my liking.
Also, I somehow feel safer with distro that's built from the ground up with a desktop environment integrated. And Mint surprised me very positively.
