I have just been offered an upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 LTS. I didn't understand most of the information in the release notes but the main thing that I am keen to preserve is the "Classic View" (gnome fall-back) as I find the Unity Desktop exceptionally unappealing and awkward to use. Indeed, the five elderly friends whose Linux needs look after also prefer the classic view.
Although I am fairly confident that I can preserve classic view in the new version I thought it wise, before taking the plunge, to seek the guidance of my fellow Forum Members. So: am I safe to continue?
