    Change Ubuntu Netbook to "Normal" Ubuntu

    I have Ubuntu Netbook on my laptop. I was wondering if there is a possibility of changing it (whenever you wanted or whatever) to basic Ubuntu Desktop Environment. I remember I have disabled Netbook Launcher from the startup application list, but I didn't have a proper Ubuntu desktop, as I couldn't edit it, couldn't (or I couldn't) place any icons there, etc., etc.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I guess that was embarrassingly easy Thanks for the quick answer.

    Not really you can do that with netbook install but not gnome desktop install. Same O.S. different GUI's. It was a good question.
    Netbook takes a little bit of experimenting with, take a peak at 10.10 netbook!! Remember still in Beta.

    I don't know if you can change it to netbook if you have 'normal' ubuntu installed. I think you've got to install the specific desktop environment. But if you have ubuntu netbook installed, you can change the desktop environment from the login screen
