"At the request of many Ubuntu users who hated the Unity interface, introduced with the Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) release, it looks like Canonical is trying hard to make it more user friendly by adding new functionality and allowing users to easily configure it.

"After the ability to access Unity's Lens directly from the 'Ubuntu Button,' the new 'Show Desktop' button, and the replacement of the Application Menu with the HUD (Head-Up Display) feature, users will now be able to quickly and easily set the Unity Launcher's icon size, to enable or disable the auto-hide function of the Unity Launcher and set the releal spot to left side or in the top left corner.

"These new Unity settings were implemented in the 'User Interface' entry (also accessible via Change Desktop Background if you right click on the desktop) in the System Settings tool for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin), along with the ability to restore Unity to the default settings.
