After trying Unity for awhile I just don't like it so I have been
looking for a substitute. I've seen people recommend using Xfce or
running Xubuntu. I ran Xubuntu in Virtual Box for awhile and like
it. Before I wipe Unity from my laptop and installed Xubuntu I wanted
to see what adding Xfce would do. I had 11.10 running in Virtual Box
so I installed the Xfce desktop in it.
One of the first things I noticed was the Unity style scrollbars were
being used by apps running on the Xfce desktop. Since this style of
scrollbar is one of the bigger annoyances I find in Unity it looks
like a reinstall is the best way for me to proceed.
Is this normal behavior? From what I read here I thought the two
desktop systems were separate and distinct from each other.
Why not just remove the offensive scrollbars?
<sudo apt-get remove overlay-scrollbar>

I had read that they could be removed, but I was just surprised that a
Unity feature would show up on an Xfce desktop. I thought that they were
completely separate. If I want to use Xfce I guess the cleanest route
to go is just install Xunbutu.
