- Can I move the Unity launcher? 4 answers
Is there a way to put unity at the bottom of the screen or is there an alternative to unity?
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
