I know what you mean, at present anyway. I note that the session can 
be set to 'classic gnome' though......

The more I have thought about it, the more I come to believe that the 
people who I help to take refuge away from Windows, would very much 
welcome running a 'toaster', even though it would not be my own 
personal choice. I do not use a Mac but isn't a Mac a lot more 
'toaster' like than Windows?

Ubuntu has got a lot going in the right direction and I can easily 
give the benefit of the doubt to a somewhat radical direction. Fingers
