When 11.04 came out, I switched to the classic version again. I like to have great menus, see all my open applications, and move between them ease.

Who makes the decisions in Ubuntu, and why did they choose Unity.

-1 question is not bad, but your grammar and writing style are terrible –  Lukas Stejskal Nov 3 '11 at 10:16
@Lukas If that is the case, you are free to edit it. –  jonallard Nov 3 '11 at 10:24
@jonallard just done that :) –  Lukas Stejskal Nov 3 '11 at 10:30
It is a question! If you like it or not. Who make those decisions, you may not like my writing style. I do not ask about question regarding my style... I ask about who make the decisions to ruin a good system and make it unusable. –  psql Nov 3 '11 at 13:20

Well maybe you should head for a Micro*** operating system, then you will for sure not have those issues. You will not have changes in structure and menus with every version coming out, all hardware will be supported and you will not have to reinstall your system every half a year... Hahaha do you believe in that?

Maybe you should not complain that offensive. Ubuntu is a great thing and they might not always decide the way I like, but such offensive behaviour for something you get for free and which is still much better than other products which are expensive.

And a hint: You can still use gnome classical desktop with ubuntu 11.10. I also still use gnome classical because I do not like unity or the other toys. But it is easy to migrate and you can find many ressources on the web, e.g. here. I guess you already found them. ANd then you can just use your old configuration which was stored in your home directory. No waste of time ;-)

After installing you can simply select gnome classical at the login screen. Its really easy, you just do not know that.

Personally I will switch to another desktop manager, e.g. LXDE, it gnome classical would become unsupported and no better solution pops out.

Me heading for M... after 15 years with linux, how wrong you are. I may go for Debian, or Mepis if anything. –  psql Nov 3 '11 at 16:50
