Switching Back To GNOME From Unity

So after a long enough delay I finally decided to switch to Natty Narwhale. The one problem I have with it is Unity, I think it looks nice but I just accomplish more with GNOME. If any of you are having the same problem try opening up terminal and entering this script:

 sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-2d
Now you should be using GNOME again! Enjoy =)

Google SketchUp Review

SketchUp is a great 3D art tool for beginners, it's free, fun and really simple. I have only had it for about a week and I have done everything from messing around to designing simple houses for fun. I also love how easy it is to get started; simply open the app and get started! I would recommend this to anyone, it's free easy and fun!

Desktop Customization Tools (WIN)

My current desktop
As you can see im a dork for customization, so lets get started. First of all I recommend setting the taskbar to auto-hide. Next find a nice wall paper.Now visit rainmeter.net and download the one customized to dependant on wether you have a 32 or 64 bit copy of Windows. Now you can add skins to display the time, weather, date, notes youv made and a lot more! Now im mainly a Windows guy but one aspect I  love of Macs is the dock, thankfully there are windows alternatives. The one im using (it is hidden in the screenshot) is Object Dock though there are many alternatives!
