    Try the gnome fallback from the sticky at the top of the forum. Otherwise KDE or Xfce? Cairo dock is something I toy around with occasionally as well.

    Was just about to mention that. :)

    The big thing for me is the performance boost I get when I use 2D instead of 3D. I know my card can handle the 3D and that's where 11.10 put me when I first...

    [ubuntu] Re: fix Oneiric or go back to Natty

    I'm sure there's some technical way to revert an upgrade that I'm not aware of. I'm still a beginner. But the only way I know how to revert an upgrade is to completely reinstall the old version.
