I've been using the GNOME classic desktop environment for Ubuntu 12.04 for a while now, and after installing conky, I've realized that the taskbars make it look cluttered. Are there any tweaking programs that can hide/remove/change the top or bottom taskbar, or a different desktop enviorment overall?

I've tried openbox and XMonad, but I could never configure it right, so a more easily-configured environment would be nice, or just the GNOME manipulator.

(NOTE: I've tried gnome-tweak, not extensive enough)
