Re: possible to change GNOME unity GUI?
Umm...I don't think just installing gnome-panel is enough. Install gnome-session-fallback.

Of course, the current version of Gnome (Gnome 3) is very different from the "classic desktop", and you might like it.
The --no-install-recommends will prevent it from automatically installing extra gnome apps that aren't really part of the desktop environment, like evolution, gnumeric, abiword, etc.
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends gnome
Jane, stop this crazy thing!
