I have abandoned Ubuntu, due to the Unity desktop environment, and I am on the verge of doing the same with Kubuntu.
I want a desktop like the classic desktop of Unbuntu Lucid Lynx. A simple, basic, functional desktop without all the fancy frills that I have no use for. I have no use and no desire for all of the bells, whistles and fancy graphics of the desktops trying to imitate Mac and Windows. And trying to be a tablet. Meanwhile making basic tasks difficult if not impossible.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
I don't want to stay with Lucid Lynx, despite how much I like it, because I still want to get the security updates, and program and system upgrades.
Any and all assistance appreciated.
