Can I switch between Gnome and Ubuntu Netbook Remix on Ubuntu?


I want to set up Ubuntu on an Acer Aspire One but want to go with the Ubuntu Netbook Remix version. At times though I may want to use the standard Gnome interface.
Is it possible for me to use both? I don't mean with dual booting but since UNR is like another desktop is it possible to switch between UNR and Gnome on Ubuntu?

I've not used UNR, but it should work. I use both Gnome and KDE. Simply log out of one, then select the other from the menu at the login prompt.

In Jaunty there is an option under preferences (Switch desktop mode) which allows you to do that without logging in or out, after all unr is just an addon to gnome.
