I don't like Unity. I managed to get the plain desktop back on 11.04. I couldn't resize those stupid icons or delete the ones I didn't want nevermind putting them in an order I wanted. I don't give a damn if the desktop can do 3D or whistle Dixie. I want plain gray and menus where I can get what I want. The applications get priority so why waste resources for a desktop?
Windows has never used fancy backgrounds and I toss all the sounds. I hate the damn computer making noises at me.
And who decided that Ubuntu had to look like a Mac? Why not Android?
