In Ubuntu 11.10/11.04, the new Unity interface is enabled by default, but if your computer hardware doesn't support the Unity interface , then the Gnome classic interface will be enabled instead.

To check if your computer hardware are capable of running Unity 3D, open the terminal and run this command:

/usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p

The last line (Unity 3D) will tell you if your computer configuration supports Unity 3D or not. Here is the output I got for my computer:

~$   /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
OpenGL vendor string:   Humper
OpenGL renderer string: Chromium
OpenGL version string:  2.1 Chromium 1.9
Not software rendered:    yes
Not blacklisted:          yes
GLX fbconfig:             yes
GLX texture from pixmap:  yes
GL npot or rect textures: yes
GL vertex program:        yes
GL fragment program:      yes
GL vertex buffer object:  yes
GL framebuffer object:    yes
GL version is 1.4+:       yes
Unity 3D supported:       yes

That's it!
