This question already has an answer here:

I have Ubuntu 13.04 installed on a Gigabyte BRIX and serving as a HTPC (plugged into my television through a HDMI connection)

My question is pretty simple, is it possible to start Ubuntu without the Unity desktop and still be able to launch graphical applications such as XBMC ?
