I have severe OCD and would like some help regarding changes to my desktop if I upgrade from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04. I use the gnome classic (no effects) desktop. The desktop has nothing on it - it is black and I have changed the top panel to black as I like things to be clear and the gnome icon within the panel appears only when I move my arrow to the top left of the screen (because I have hidden it) which is perfect for me.
Now, I see that the new release includes the gnome classic desktop - will those settings I have described above be kept in the new release as I don't want to go through these things again because of my condition. Please give me any advice as this is important to me.
