Restoring Classic Desktop in Ubuntu 12.04

I tried to like the new desktop Unity, but I failed to do so.
So I restored the classic desktop.

1. Resource
Return to Gnome Classic in Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin): http://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/03/return-to-gnome-classic-in-ubuntu-12-04-precise-pangolin/

2. Install Classic Desktop
Press Ctl+Alt+T to launch the Terminal. (It is not readily available in Unity desktop.)
$ sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback

3. Switch to Classic Desktop
Log off.
Select GNOME Classic from the drop down menu icon in the login window.
