The new Ubuntu 16.04 release allows moving the Unity launcher to the bottom of the screen. This does make sense, screens are wider than they are tall, and I like having the bar on the bottom of the screen. Use the command below to move the bar to the bottom.

[email protected]:~$ gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Launcher launcher-position Bottom

This command will move it back to the left of the screen.

[email protected]:~$ gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Launcher launcher-position Left

This is a great way to make your Ubuntu Unity desktop look different. This is how it looks on a 1920×1080 screen.
