I tried installing gnome 3 from the ppa, but it broke Unity and I had to reinstall Natty from scratch.
Does anyone know if there is a way to install Gnome 3 without breaking Unity?

I used the instructions at the attached link to install Gnome Shell on 11.04 without breaking Unity.
"By compiling Gnome Shell using the instructions in this post, all the packages the Gnome >Shell script will download and compile will not replace any existing libraries and it >will install in your home folder, so you don't have to worry about breaking stuff on your >system (excluding here the build dependencies of course, which are usual packages from >the Ubuntu repositories and will install just like any other package)"
