    The best for me is Ubuntu 10.10 .. 11.04... also has gnome 2 but is is not working so fine as in 10.10

    gnome 3 is horible .. it is not for working .. it is like a slideshow that i don't need

    sorry ubuntu team but at the moment ubuntu 10.10 is great ..

    - ubuntu 10.10 forever


    after ubuntu 11.10 i hope you will return as a option classical desktop from Gnome 2

    I was using 10.10.. But did a fresh install of 11.04 after using 11.10 since beta 2 recently. I just have to say, I'm with the OP on this thread. I would to see something like Mate become available. Unity is great for tiny little 10 inch devices, but I need what Gnome 2 provided me when it comes to a desktop environment. I could list the reasons many of us Gnome 2 fans share, but I will save myself the time explaining why, and just post some links so you can see what everyone else has to say about it:

    Well, I would agree about not liking the new Ubuntu look. But one solution is to install 10.04. It has the "classic" Gnome 2 desktop.

    Ubuntu is a dead distro now. It's a disaster. It ended at 10.10.

    I've been using Debian for ages. I upgraded recently with testing and got Gnome 3. I was concerned at first due to Ubuntu unity disaster. However, Gnome 3 on Debian is great.

    I can't even recommend Ubuntu anymore to people I'm trying to move to Linux. Mint is the best for newbies.

    There's always the MATE project, which is forking Gnome 2 and attempting to continue it's development. They have a ppa in launchpad, but I'm unsure how complete it is. Might wanna do some research to find the newest version of their project
