upgrade from ubuntu 10.10 to 11.4, now cant find anything. no terminal, admin nothin

hi everyone.. so i just jumped into linux with both feet not having a clue what im doing.. loaded ubuntu 10.10.. liked it but i couldnt get stellarium to work with my ati x1300, so i upgraded to 11.4 and it works fine.. problem is.. i have a applications start on the left side, but i cant seem to find the setup like in 10.10 at the top, where you can go to terminal, admin, synaptic, etc.. the only way i found synaptic was trying to download it and asked me if i wanted to keep it in the bar, so now its on the left, but cant find anything else.. ive been trying to find it on the net but 11.4 seems to be so new that there arent very many faqs or tutorials about would be nice if i can get that stuff back without having to format and reinstall 10.10.. im not going back to windows.. so i might as well figure this out.. thanks..

11.04 is still in alpha-state, that is why you won't find much tutorials now.. If you are new to Linux I would not recommend to use an alpha version of any distro. I would recommend to stick with 10.10 and open a new thread about your problem with stellarium.
