    I had compiz with gnome 2, I guess this made gnome2 a 3d desktop...

    I installed compiz with xfce once, and it worked fine too.

    I really don't like KDE, so I didn't use it there.

    This is TERRIFIC news!

    At last - I see a distribution that can replace 10.04 for me...

    Do people know if the workspace switcher is functional in the same way as gnome 2 - in that I can drag files between workspaces with it?

    Right now I got my 11.10 to look pretty much just like that, Gnome 2 style. So I am assuming someone just decided to my life easy for me and do all the work a head of time. But I am very grateful for that. I never really complained about unity, more like I just tried to pretend it never existed and that Gnome3 never happened. It's not that I am a backwards looking person who is afraid of change... it's that I like things to be organized and working.

    You may wish to compare and contrast those two sentences. Sounds like the very definition of change resistance to me...

    Well... It's not about change, it's about personal preference and that sentence was worded to be funny >.>

    Re: Classic gnome is back in 12.04

    Im in no rush to upgrade to 12.04. Probably going to wait until the .1 release to upgrade from my 10.04.4. Anyway, was this to stop people from installing the 12.04 version of linux mint? Or were they planning to do this all along? Sorry I have a problem with jumping to conclusions.

    I'm with Deathshot on this one. Although I have actually installed and in current use gnome3 and unity. Unity is targeted for a different market to me. Gnome-shell seems to be more suited to power-users, and both have their positive aspects.

    But when you don't have 3D acceleration, and these desktops hinder the way you normally like to work, then the classical interface is exactly what you need.

    I prefer Gnome 2.x look and feel too. I hate the auto hideaway/popup icons and window controls. I find it a little odd that people will imply that all I'm doing is resisting change - and this from people (like me) that use and love a command line interface.

    Yes - the pop out bar is a big problem for me, as I seem to be incredibly prone to triggering it off. Usually because I'm trying to get to something on the far left of the screen. This is extra irritating because it means I have to wait for it to go before I can carry on.

    I don't think I'm resistant to change - afterall it was only three years ago that I wiped an entire XP installation and dove headfirst into a complete linux world. In fact, I was optimistic about unity and gnome-shell - I still am, but it is guarded - they both need a lot of work, and I don't know how long it will be before it actually becomes better for me than Gnome2 is.
