    Good...for you?

    Use whatever works. I see this becoming a flamewar sometime soon.

    But what are you going to do on 30th April next year when support for 10.04 ceases?

    Ubuntu 12.04 has a pretty decent classic session (gnome-panel) I believe it is the best Ubuntu yet. ALso, it's supported for 5 long years.

    I will probably use gnome classic in 12.04

    I forgot that it still had gnome classic

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04

    I use ubuntu 10.04 on my Old Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 Ghz I am using the macbuntu theme which makes me feel like I have a mac,Because I cannot afford a new one.
    Also I have the hard drive split up so I can run Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 on it.

    Also I wish I could afford an solidstate drive but those things are still way overpriced.

    You could just install Mate over 12.04 and have your Gnome 2.xish desktop and/or use Linux Mint w/Mate.

    well updates for kernel part are still going to come for 2 more years (server LTS had 5 year support even before). just updates for progammes and bugfixes not anymore. but they are not coming in anyway.

    Since noone has mentioned this yet, I have to chip in the classical "if you don't like Unity, have you tried Xubuntu?'
