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.

Alternatively Use Auto-Hide option at appearance-setting. Or Install classicmenu-indicator or indicater-synapse etc packages which is displayed as applet. – Pandya Jun 9 '14 at 16:02

I'm not sure if you mean the menu bar at the top, or the launcher which is at the left. There is an article which discusses how to move the launcher to the bottom to make Unity a bit more OSX like, and might work on 14.04

Otherwise you might examine some of the alternate desktops available to the gnome desktop. Open the software center and search for desktop

Yes there are many alternative desktop environment's other than utility. For example Ubuntu Gnome and there are many other version's of Ubuntu you can check them here. One can use two Desktop Environment's in same kernel. For more details go here
