If I just upgrade my 10.10 to 11.04, will it replace gnome with unity? I tried unity before and it is not satifying because it is not customizable, I feel I have less options and less power over what my interface looks like and how it behaves. Same case with gnome3.
I'm wondering if when I upgrade to Naughty will I have to go through a lot of messing around with packages and configuration files to get back to gnome2 ?
Do we have an option when we upgrade to choose between Unity, Gnome2 and Gnome3?

Gnome2 classic interface will continue to be an option until 11.10. You just have to select it from sessions on the login screen.

This is right but I would encourage you to look at this and be sure you know what you can do with unity.

Natty still uses Gnome2 with the Unity UI. you can get the standard Gnome UI by following the steps in posts #1 and #2 here:

Yes you can load Natty/11.04 and still use the 'Classic’ UI: Natty Info: Your UI options (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1741293)
