That's a severe understatement.
Get over it, its been the default desktop in Ubuntu for 4+ years. I don't see any major decline in Ubuntu's popularity since it came out. The change from from Gnome 2 to unity wasn't a popular move at the time, I didn't like it, but when Microsoft did what it did to Windows with 8, it paled into utter insignificance. I learnt to live with it, I quite like it now. Gnome2 looks very dated alongside it.
It would probably not be a good move on a Pi2. The later versions do need a bit of horsepower behind them.
Don't judge Linux by the Pi.......
I must not tread on too many sacred cows......
