I am currently using Mate and I like it, but I want to get Unity, too. I think that I would be able to compile it from source, but n ow the que...

Removing Desktops

I have sabayon 9 Gnome installed, and I have filled it with GUIs. I have installed Xfce, Lxde, Openbox, Fluxbox, Cinnamon, Mate. I think that I will be using Mate most of the time. Will I face any problems if I remove Gnome?
