    In my admitedly limited experience, 'Universal Character Set' and 'UCS' seem to be terms
    more commonly used by people who come at this project from the WG2 (i.e. ISO 10646) side
    of things. Since Unicode not just the character set but also 'imposes additional
    constraints on implementations to ensure that they treat characters uniformly across
    platforms and applications', it isn't surprising that developers and even end users make
    more common reference to 'Unicode', since that is in practical terms how they encounter
    the UCS.
