Ubuntu is showing build date as 11.10, so this version is a year old. I don't know if I should update it or not. So far all my external hardware is working without issues, but I haven't tried my Brother All-In-One printer yet. Is this Unity desktop, as Bob mention, it has the icons as a sidebar?

My next task is to get the AIO working, which shouldn't be a big deal since Brother do offer .deb files on their website.

To be continued...
Unity is a desktop UI. It can be replaced with whatever you want. Open box, iceWM, cinnamon, kde. I have 12.10 with the cinnamon desktop running. Its what mint uses. Very nice desktop interface. I'll post a screen cap after work
