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
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
