This is not possible with earlier versions of Unity but will be possible in Unity 5.0: see the image in one of the answers here:

To get rid of the "Most frequently used programs" section:

  1. launch dconf-editor (which is part of the dconf-tools Install dconf-tools package)
  2. navigate to /desktop/unity/lenses/applications
  3. uncheck the display-recent-apps box

12.04

(click to install)

Configuration of Display Recent Apps and its counterpart Display Available Apps is now available directly via the GUI application MyUnity

enter image description here

The image shows the option turned off - you can click as shown to switch-on the Dash display of recent apps.

If you want to install unity 5.0 on 11.10:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity-team/staging
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I have upgraded, works perfectly.
