Restoring the old gnome desktop

I knew I was going to regret switching to the Unity desktop and I was 
right!  I was assured that I could choose to use the Classic Gnome 
desktop if I didn't like Unity.  I ungraded to version 11.10 and I can't 
find how to choose the classic desktop.  On the previous version, I 
could at least choose to use the Gnome Classic desktop.

I did go to the software repository and downloaded Gnome 3.  I thought 
that would restore the Gnome desktop (No dice).  I looked at the Help 
menu and I was unable to find it.  So the question is...  What must I do 
to get back to the Gnome desktop.
