Can you give a quick simple example of what an "unbug" would look like as opposed to a bug? Does the term refer to a dirty hack to workaround a problem which gets the job done but isn't elegant?

"Unbug" refers to a pleasant experience from using a piece of software. It's a time that got you thinking "whoa!" when you used another's piece of code. The trouble is, that we all hear about our "bugs" or defects. And that's okay. But programmers often also produce good, quality, working software. But we rarely if ever get to hear about that. It's just "supposed to be like that". So I thought that maybe it would only be fair to let responsible programmers know when they produce good quality software experience ("unbug" for a lack of a better term) just as much as they hear about the "bugs".
