Windows 7 style libraries?view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have been looking for a solution to this but have yet to find anything useful. One thing that I find incredibly good with Windows 7 was the introduction of libraries.

http://ubuntuforums.org – When installing Ubuntu 14.10 can you install it with Unity 8? I would think it still comes with Unity 7? I played around with Unity 8 and it is completely different then 7. I have a touch screen so I am interested in giving it a try even though there are a lot of bugs yet. Maybe another good question would be can you switch between them? (Hardware)
