    The last update I've seen is just a rename of "classic" back to "fallback":

    If you log out and check available sessions you'll see the name change

    But it appears to still be working good.

    Is that the only change they made?

    edit! Yes .. I see.. sheesh.. why even mention it.

    Here's what my Ubuntu-GNOME-remix login screen looks like with gnome 3.7.3 from the staging PPA, and with 'gnome-session-fallback' installed:

    And here's what the "new classic" session looks like ATM:

    Just remember it's all a work in progress, so it's too soon to pass judgment

    And since Raring will use gnome 3.6 I expect the "fallback" session to survive just this cycle and then disappear in 13.10, but my time machine is borked so it's just a game of wait and see.

    Hmmmm... ok ..! I think I am then trying to dream the impossible dream. That being that Canonical will extend Lucid LTS updates for another 2 years. I mean I can still install raring on older machines (even 600MHz PIII) but MATE is so crumudgeon on older machines, (fvwm-crystal better) but for those who like the older gnome + ubuntu is going to be obsolete.

    I have about 30 PC's running this setup with Precise:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1966370

    And it's supported until April 2017, so if I don't like the options available in 14.04 I'll wait for 16.04 to decide which route to take
