I'd like to upgrade my netbook from Lucid Netbook Edition to Maverick. However, in trying the live USB, I found Unity to be unusable. Is it possible to use Maverick and keep the interface from the Lucid Netbook Edition?

<rant>Unity is painfully slow and missing several essential features. Also, who in their right mind would make a sidebar that's reminiscent of the MacOS dock? Mixing launchers with icons for currently-open programs is brain dead.

I just hope a ton of work goes into Unity before it gets foisted on us next April.</rant>

your just not a dock user, thats all, doesn't mean the rest of us are brain dead.

the only option in 10.10 is the 2d version.

I'd recommend Lubuntu for a netbook over Ubuntu Netbook at the moment. I upgraded a really underpowered Aspire One to 10.10 and Ubuntu Netbook was unusable. Lubuntu flies.
