But QBus is much easier to use. ;-( 
My Unibus experience is a PDP-11/34A that I killed by reversing the
order of the cards. I documented everything very carefull before
cleaning. But when I reassembled it later, I turned the backplane upside
down. So I filled it with cards begining at slot 9 instead of slot 1.
Power on, lots of magic blue smoke. :-((( The console interface is dead
and the CPU damaged. Fortunately I was able to replace this parts.
