Hi there;

I just downloaded and installed Ubuntu 12.04 beta on my test computer. This is my first  exposure to Unity.

While exploring the ways to avoid the new desktop manager, I found that I can install Gnome 3 "fallback mode":

sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback

There is some doubt in my mind whether or not this will be an "official" part of 12.04 when it is released, and whether or not using gnome fallback will be available and problem-free  through the lifespan of the release. 

I would welcome any comment on this, as well as anything else that would help me to decide if I should upgrade to 12.04 even if though I discovered I have no taste for Unity.

TIA, Michael
