Unity is said to make your workflow faster and easier – but is this true?

Ubuntu contributor Jo-Erlend Schinstad decided to see how much time he would save using Unity compared to Gnome Panel (Classic) when performing a set of simple tasks.

Jo then played both videos back side by side and recorded that to create the video below.
