Yeah, no. Totally disagree on all points.

Most people hate new stuff. Most people hated GNOME 3 when it came out.

People hating both is why Mint got so big.

Unity is just the macOS desktop, but with Windows keystrokes. If you know how to drive Windows with the keyboard, it's great.

Most people don't know the Windows keystrokes, though, and don't know how to use the Windows desktop _well_.

If you don't, GNOME is keyboard-centric and proclaims that fact, and so you can learn all GNOME's new ones and thus drive it. But it doesn't work with the old ones, and neither does KDE, which is one reason I dislike both.
