This old gnome classic makes me feel like using the same old gnome with new apps. I am sure that there are people who use the old gnome session on their computers with this upgrade. I wanted to install cinnamon and mate from the repository but it seems that there is hardly any need considering i can use the gnome fallback session on ubuntu.
My system specs are -
- Intel second generation core i3
- RAM 2GB
- Intel graphics
- Ubuntu 12.04
It is still slow when all the effects are applied and that is what makes it hard to use between snappy slowless.
So far I have managed to use the compiz effects on all the desktop environment and it is working fine but disabled them because i hardly need them and they are not that attrctive either. So instead of unity, gnome 3 and compiz, I settled down to the gnome session fallback.
There is a lot of branding inside ubuntu software center. I mean any search query will show some ubuntu product in software center. I don't know if they want to make money desparately but it seems they are over promoting.
Anyway, it is too early to say anything about the release from ubuntu. let me take 1 more week to make some more conclusions.
