If you upgrade you Ubuntu Netbook release to 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) you will notice a change to the new ¨Unity¨ user interface.
Personally I think the new interface is absolutely horrible (from a usability perspective) and I wanted to revert to the previous Netbook-Launcher.
Install the required components via terminal:
sudo apt-get install netbook-launcher-efl
After install just change the “Login Settings”
Log out and after the next login: voila – the laucher interface:
However in the end I changed to the desktop interface which I found the most useful for my type of usage.
