I've used Ubuntu for almost a year and I pretty much don't like the Unity environment and I installed BackTrack R3 in my laptop which uses GNOME 2.32 and I'm much impressed with that and made a decision to move to GNOME but, it is currently in version 3.x and it has been said that there is no GNOME 2.x versions are supported.
I don't like the new GNOME and surfed the internet for finding a distro
For a couple of weeks I've been fighting for Ubuntu Gnome on armhf... ;)
The reference article is here:
As known well, the saucy preinstalled image of nexus7-team is so hard to install into our nexus7, so I also suggest that we should install raring 1st via preinstalled image and then do dist-upgrading. So why?
