How to roll back Ubuntu to a previous version?

I updated my Laptop Ubuntu from 11.10 to 12.04, and I like 11.10 much much better! I originally put Ubuntu on my lap top by CD so I was wondering if I could just reload it from the CD. Will 12.04 be replaced with 11.10 if I did? I would love to have 11.10 back!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Can you explain why this is so as I find it curious. Do you require compatibility with a specific package? Had you said 11.04 I would have understood since that was the last version in which you could 'avoid' using Unity. 11.10 and 12.04 both have it, only it didn't work as well in 11.10. – gecko May 22 '12 at 15:18

Sorry, but a safe and wizarded downgrade is not possible. The best solution is backup everything and make a fresh install. You will find several topic around saying a downgrade is possible, but it's a manual operation that can be considered as equivalent as a fresh install after a backup.
