Jetpack WP Plugin?

I decided to give the free version of Jetpack a try for  From what I read the “plug-in” has a lot bundled in one package.  It also seems to be a well respected and maintained plug in.

I used this article from Chris Lema to help make this decision.

Nothing against the article  but I decided to uninstall Jetpack before I even remembered to post this.  Jetpack was more then I wanted.  It changed the interface from my site to (The Jetpack site).  I want more control over my site at this time.  Maybe since I am still learning wordpress I am not ready to have my interface changed so drastically.
