Ubuntu 11.10 restore traditional desktop

I have upgraded my Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10 ... it took one hour to do the upgrade, and once restarted I was freaked.
The traditional, stern and essential Ubuntu look and feel was gone, replaced by a google-iphonish display. Crap! Don't do that to me! I am not a sissy! I like STERN ESSENTIAL interfaces.

So here I find this post:

and I do:

sudo apt-get install gnome-panel

then restart, and before I login I choose the "gnome classic, no effects" interface.

and life is "almost" back to its usual course.

Please notice also that the very important item "System Setting" is hidden somewhere in the top right button.... not a very smart choice IMHO
