Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Programs like skype, browsers etc. etc. and my all files. Will it be the same after upgrading to 12.04 from 10.04 or I will have to reinstall everything? Thank you.

EDIT: Also, as I understood. only Unity is available in 12.04? Can I make it look like 10.04?

If you're doing an upgrade - your personal files, settings and applications you installed will be preserved, you won't have to reinstall them.

If you're doing a clean install then you will need to re-install applications.

In both cases it is advisable to make a full backup of your personal data.

Regarding Unity - Ubuntu 12.04 will include so-called "fallback mode" which is somewhat similar to Gnome 2, though it's not identical.

I'd wait for the final release. It is scheduled for release in only 16 days. –  jippie Apr 10 '12 at 6:40
