new to ubunutu server 11.10
where's the applications menu?
the GUI i have doesn't appear to be all there.
i don't know what gui it is. there's a vertical bar to the left. top icon - mouse over says "dash home"
most annoying thing is the top line of the screen is hogged by something which just repeats the title of whatever app is running with input focus.
i'd really like to switch from Windows to ubuntu 'cos M$ is going out of business. 1st impressions: ubunto is no faster than windows, it's really bad at telling you what's going on. once i;ve installed an app - ubuntos hides it never to be seen again. the software center lets u see apps but not run them! ~@^@&*$!
