I've installed Ubuntu 11.10 with the new Unity Desktop. I understand that I can access the classic "Applications" menu by switching to Gnome. However, I was wondering if it's possible to access the menu thru the Unity Desktop. If not, then what is the best way to access the installed programs?
ubuntu 11.10 and above

Else you can open application via unity dash
