Unity vs Xfce

I just finished my install of server 14.04 and it comes up with the Xfce desktop. I would like to run Unity or Gnome and would like the ability to switch desktops.

Re: The "introduce yourself" thread

Introduction redux. Ranger and Jin here. Been a member of this forum for a few years and was active until I got my media server built. All was great under WinVista.
