Trying to disable some of the eye candy on gnome 2.14

To begin with, I apologize if this post is in the incorrect area, I figured since this would most likely be a simple method, it would be posted here.

Now im running a fresh install of vlos with gnome 2.14 installed on it, and I noticed that there were new features added to gnome. (fade in/out menus, interesting window movement, other jazz like that) Im not completely shure if these features are actually included with gnome or not, but I still tried to find ways to disable these features. So far, I have found no way to disable these features, and searching around has brought me to no solution (perhaps because I have no clue what to call these features).

I spent a great deal of time trying to find a way to disable this, and im completely clueless on how to disable the features, and im quite tempted to change to xfce. :P

Thanks for any help in advance.
