Neither my wife nor I found Unity at all user friendly. When I tried it
on my laptop, it wouldn't enable any of the compositing effects, I guess
the 8-year old Intel video hardware just isn't up to snuff anymore.
Actually, there's 2 versions of Unity now. One uses 3D acceleration
(assuming hardware/driver supports such). The other is Unity 2D. It is
noticeably faster than 3D on old hardware.
