    Default Click this link to install Gnome classic on Ubuntu 12.04

    Unity simply sucks. I would rather use Windows Vista than use the Unity interface. Here's the easiest way to install Gnome classic (as seen in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS) on 12.04.

    1. Click the link.
    2. Log out.
    3. Choose "Gnome Classic" on the login screen.
    4. Celebrate.

    Nice, thanks FT!

    Can you imagine Unity on a tablet...?

    Tried Ubuntu for a while. Frankly I'm to lazy to figure out linux (I'm used to Windows.... yeah, insert flames below).

    And yet I wanted a Gnex (my first Android device) because they are so easy to customize and hack. Then again I've only dipped my toes into the hacking end, and used a tool rather then AKD/SDK and learning the actual commands. I'll get there

    And if I had a 2nd computer (not my main machine) to play around on... I'm pretty sure I'd wipe out Windows and try Ubuntu again. Last version of Ubuntu I tried? 10.04.... and Unity wasn't that bad. Not great (but better then my old desktop that ran XP!)

    I couldn't possibly agree more. Thanks

    Kudos on that...... Unity interface really bites... I tested it out recently and ended installing an earlier version of ubuntu

    Cheers for link. Didn't realise I disliked unity until I installed Gnome 3.

    Unity wasn't on 10.04 lol . That's GNOME classic.

    I haven't been using Linux for long. Less than a year actually but don't mind Unity too much. Why do you guys dislike it?

    I've always been a fan of Mac OS's (and Mac OS X's) Finder.

    Gnome has always been Finder-done-right, until Unity and Gnome 3. That's why I use Linux Mint with MATE. I really want nothing to do with Ubuntu anymore, because I feel they really don't suit my needs. I'd also be lying if I said I didn't feel a bit betrayed by them, and I don't handle betrayal very well.

    Right now, I'm on a LM install on a flash drive, and I love it. Sure, it's not quite *as* quick as if it was running from an HDD or SSD over SATA, but for why I'm using it, this is fantastic.
