I kinda got fed up with the poorly utilized top bar area of GNOME and decided to remove it in favor of Ubuntu’s former Unity desktop. To get it work properly I had to make sure GNOME was completely removed removed from my system as they share some settings. I also installed the proper Ambiance and Radiance themes were installed. I also reinstalled lightdm and removed gdm for my log in screen.

Recently snapped up the Linux Geek Humble Bundle and this is where I’ve chosen to start. A few friends on G+ have suggested I try BSD and to this day I haven’t given it a fair shake. I expect this fun title will change that.
