Installed 12.04 on a dual boot with XP, I don't like it and want to go with 10.04
I am putting a new system together and I made the mistake of installing a 'newer' version of Ubuntu without first checking it out. I am currently used to using version 10,04 which I have on my computer, but for my wife's new computer I installed 12.04 as this was the latest LTS version. However, the thing I didn't contemplate on is that everything is totally changed.
1) taskbar is on top (can't move it to the bottom, or at least I don't know how to move it now)
2) start button is on the right, not left (can't seem to move that either)
3) max, min, close buttons are on the left side (whereas older versions of Ubuntu and Windows have it in the 'normal' right position....and yes, it seems you can't move that either).
4) minimized windows are on the left (???)
5) I can't find the terminal as I want to edit grub so Windows is the defaut.
Needless to say, since this is going on my wife's computer and I am having trouble finding my way around, she will NEVER get it.
Granted 12.04 is pretty and does have a nice 'wow' factor. But being intuitive it isn't...I have to teach my wife this and as such 12.04 has to go.
What I would like to do is set up my old version of Ubuntu, 10.04 on a dual boot WITH WINDOWS AS DEFAULT ON BOOTUP on my wife's machine. How do I do this without obliterating her Windows partition?
