    Stick with Gnome Classic?

    I have Ubuntu 11.10 installed on my PC.I have used Gnome classic,Gnome 3 and Unity since initially Unity was too slow. But now after using ccsm Unity has become quite fast. But still it is slow compared to Gnome classic. So I would like to know if using Gnome classic now is going to cause me any problems in future ... like support issues or anything else.

    If you still want to use Ubuntu Classic (or GNOME2), consider using MATE, a GNOME 2 fork. It's pretty stable now, and mostly compatible with GNOME 3 and Unity. You can use all three on the same system and it still works pretty well. Get MATE at http://mate-desktop.org, and you will get the Ubuntu Classic experience, mostly... .

    I wouldn't do a new install of Maverick now - support (including security fixes) ends in April. You could use the 10.04 LTS for another year, or use an up to date version with MATE as suggested above - 11.10 + MATE is really quick!

    I have used Maverick before and it was lightning fast! But for some reasons I switched back to windows (was a mistake ).Then last week I installed Oneiric and it was hard to deal with so many changes and sluggish performance.But now I am starting to like Unity 2d so I think I'll stick with it.Its hard to customise though for newbies like me
