I would love to use UNR instead of unity, I think it's much better. I first found it in 10.04 netbook but I don't want to do a fresh install of that it's way to much work.

I have a new problem, I can't choose what interface I want like, unity, UNR or normal desktop (on the log in screen). It may be sorted in the final release but, now it's a big problem.

Everything works now, and it's stable, big thanks!

I have not tried it, but you can install netbook-launcher-efl, which should look like this:

I don't know if the package still exists on Natty, but in Maverick it does.

@Alvar You need to logout and then select something like "Ubuntu netbook remix" at the login prompt (Where it normally says "Ubuntu") – James Apr 27 '11 at 21:53
well I can't even select normal desktop mode! how do I do it? everything is wrong in natty (or different) – Alvar Apr 27 '11 at 22:18
aaaah, it's very buggy this, I could log in and see the Beautiful UNR desktop and when I opened the system monitor everything was a normal desktop again. sad hope it becomes more stable in the final release of 11.04. – Alvar Apr 27 '11 at 22:41
When I added some favorites everyting worked! Thanks! :) – Alvar Apr 28 '11 at 7:59

There is a Natty Narwhal package from the Launchpad Netbook Launcher EFL project (which is not identical to the Netbook Launcher that came with the 9.10 a, 10.04 UNR). See also this question. I have not tested this, mainly because I am very happy with Unity.
