You can install XFCE from the repositories and use it instead.Ditching Unity is one of the first things I did after the upgrade, not only because of the CPU-hungry compositing effects but also, I couldn't find anything.

Neither my wife nor I found Unity at all user friendly. When I tried it on my laptop, it wouldn't enable any of the compositing effects, I guess the 8-year old Intel video hardware just isn't up to snuff anymore.Actually, there's 2 versions of Unity now. One uses 3D acceleration (assuming hardware/driver supports such). The other is Unity 2D. It is noticeably faster than 3D on old hardware.
