Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Like Ubuntu's Unity interface? Great. If not, you can easily change it to look and act like Ubuntu used to. This tutorial shows how.

RE[2]: Nice but...

Uh, use a different distro?

Exactly. I once used Slackware and Ubuntu depending on the machine in question (I've always had better luck with Ubuntu than Slackware on laptops). But when Slackware dropped Gnome and it became a headache to deal with third-party replacement packages, and then Ubuntu went with Unity, I switched to Arch Linux.

All that said, for some people simply switching to a new distro can be more frustrating and labor-intensive than just learning to like Unity or replacing it with Gnome. For those people's sake, I'm glad Mr. Fosdick posted the article.

I would suggest to anyone willing to switch distros, if you want something as easy to use and learn as Ubuntu but with a more classic Gnome interface, go with Linux Mint.
