I hate 12.04 and all the changes they forced on us. I'm spending hours fixing things I had set just right before.

Is there a good thread here that covers a of the details on how to get 12.04 back to how I liked it in 11.04?

Like dumping Unity - done.
But how to get the window buttons back on the right, where is the theme choice now? Seems like it's gone away. And also how to get menu/status bar to be hideable again too.

I'm really thinking of going to Debian or some other Linux now as I hate that every upgrade Canonical is forcing massive interface changes. Really pisses me off how much work it is to fix things.
