[ubuntu] Where is the old layout...12.04 sucks

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Is it my imagination or does 12.04 suck. I can't find squat. Right now I need to find out where I can edit the execute command for an application. I used to go to the main menu edit area. Where is that located now. I can't find any menus except for the few items on the left dide of my desktop. The top icon shows lots of applications but no main menu. (Hardware)
