comment Unity-2D is slow on my computer
I understand that Unity-2D is laggy for my computer, which is normal. However, I don't want the laggyness. Seems like my only free option is to ditch Gnome as even the next Linux Mint will have Gnome-3. Might have to swap to Lubuntu 12.04 even though LXDE is has many missing features compared to Gnome-2. Gnome-2 which runs fine on my GX270. Maybe even stretch 10.04 to EOL and get a new computer before EOL for 10.04, so I've got about 2 and a half years to upgrade my hardware.

comment Can't enable Unity 2D
Thanks, this helped me realise that I was running Unity 2D all along. It's really slow which is why I thought that I might be running standard Unity, but I'm not... On this same laptop, Ubuntu 10.04 with the standard desktop runs very very responsive. For example, if I click on the webbrower on 10.04, it loads in about a second, on 11.10 it takes about 5 seconds... Might have to consider Lubuntu in the future as my main OS when 10.04 reaches EOL.
