Just Upgraded my Primary Desktop to Ubuntu Precise

The upgrade went smoothly. After the final reboot, my system looked unchanged. It took a few minutes to find anything new. Here’s what I found at that point;

Some of my older games (Heroes 3 & 4) no longer worked. I’d been running them under Crossover Office 8.2. I downloaded the latest trial version and after some minor glitches, it installed. The games then worked fine so I paid the $39.99 upgrade price.

Then in Gnome Classic, I noticed that the top bar was missing from “Windows” programs running in Crossover or wine. That meant I couldn’t move them around, maximize or minimize them without using the dock icon. For now at least I’ve switched back to Unity.
