I am a Gnome 3 fan, but after upgrading to 12.10 I feel like I want to give Unity another try. One problem that I have with Unity though is the menu bars in programs and window buttons displaying in the panel. I HATE this, can someone please tell me how to stop Unity from doing this?

Note: I found a site that explains how to stop a majority of windows from displaying the menus in the panel, but most of them still have the window buttons in the panel. I like to have my buttons on the right, but when a window is maximized, Unity displays the window buttons on the left of the panel. I want to stop Unity from taking control of my maximized windows.

Maybe it's worth a spin, however I use gnome shell, so I don't know.
