Make Ubuntu 14.04 Look Like Windows with Gnome

After setting up dual-booting with Windows 8 and Ubuntu one of the first things that I did was to have my Windows habits and my Ubuntu habits converge to make things (much) easier.  I decided to make Ubuntu look more like Windows.

There are already several posts about having Ubuntu look like Windows, however they have left out that in the default Unity desktop it is impossible to have your menu buttons (close, minimize, maximize) on the right hand side a la Windows (Unity Tweak Tool bug report).  This leads to needing to use an alternate desktop (like Gnome with the Gnome Tweak Tool) to achieve this effect.  It was pretty easy to switch.
