The one OS image here has options that work to login under 
these different window managers (click on the round logo to the right of
the password box) xubuntu, lubuntu, ubuntu gnome classic and openbox:


The normal Ubuntu unity desktop is also an option,
but gives a blank desktop because composting
is not working. I sorely wish to have compiz and desktop cube
working, but util Allwinner release all the information
for the graphics controllers libv and others have to do
everything by guesswork.

(Also, the username/password jm/jm works - the other
 default username has problems and will return back
 to the login screen.)

There is option to upgrade from Ubuntu 13.04 to 
to Ubuntu 13.10. If taken,
the ubuntu gnome classic will be replaced with something
that sounds similar (I forget the exact name), but it is
not the same as gnome classic. It also gives blank desktop
(though the other window managers remain usable).
