I'm new to Ubuntu, and I would like to unite the unity panel with the top status panel in one panel...

What I'm trying to do is to make a single panel, something Windows-like. Is this possible to do without switching to XFCE or installing another docky/panel and hide the unity panel?

I tried some solutions, and I'm not satisfied with XFCE. I don't want to change icons or theme: I simply want to unite these two panels.

How should I proceed?
