I'm very new to Linux so I need a Windows-like UI. I have tried Cinnamon 1.8/2/0 on Ubuntu 13.10 (in a VM) and Cinnamon 1.8 on Ubuntu 13.04. None of the combination worked. It either crashes or the start menu freezes when I click on it. From reading through some threads it seems like this is caused by the new Ubuntu having the Unity UI, is there an Ubuntu distro without the Unity UI? Or is there another Windows-like theme that will work with Ubuntu 13.xx? Thanks.
