I take it you mean the Unity Desktop. Fortunately the classic is still there.
Nope, I mean the toolbars turned the exact color of the classic windows theme, and it literally looks like Windows 98.

Ah! Mine did that too. It came back when I logged out and back in again. It's been ok since.

Most people do fresh installs if they plan to upgrade, as most of them get problems when doing a dist upgrade via update manager.

Ubuntu forums always gets a ton of those threads at each release when people do dist-upgrade over fresh install. "Blah blah nothing working right", "Broken stuffs", etc etc..

Installed it on laptop with no problems. Fought for about three hours to get it on desktop. Dual boot on both.

Don't like Unity so have gone back to Gnome on both machines.

I mainly use it if I have just a quick email to send (or similar) - much faster boot than Win7.

You can change the UI to the classic version as I said a few posts back.

I don't have any problems with that. I'll fix it tonight. That error was before upgrating.
