Another option that you might find worth exploring is using one of the
lighter desktop environments, such as XFCE or LXDE.  I think both of
them would allow you to move away from Gnome/Unity without having to
invest so heavily in finding replacements for all the parts of
Gnome/Unity that "make things just work".
