Well, I am not using 2D or 3D Unity. My beef with Unity was the
stupid bar on the left that would not move. I did read something on
here on how to "Hack" it and change the position but I really didn't
llike the look anyway.
What I did was install the xubuntu-desktop package so it is kinda like
Xubuntu. I am contimplating wiping and reloading this weekend with
the actual xubuntu distro iso.
