Good...for you?

Use whatever works. I see this becoming a flamewar sometime soon. :)

But what are you going to do on 30th April next year when support for 10.04 ceases?

Ubuntu 12.04 has a pretty decent classic session (gnome-panel) I believe it is the best Ubuntu yet. ALso, it's supported for 5 long years.

I just replaced the laces on my favourite trainers. Even though the shoes are old, they're comfy. Same same, innit?

I will probably use gnome classic in 12.04

I forgot that it still had gnome classic

I use ubuntu 10.04 on my Old Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 Ghz I am using the macbuntu theme which makes me feel like I have a mac,Because I cannot afford a new one.
Also I have the hard drive split up so I can run Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 on it.

Also I wish I could afford an solidstate drive but those things are still way overpriced.

You could just install Mate over 12.04 and have your Gnome 2.xish desktop and/or use Linux Mint w/Mate.

well updates for kernel part are still going to come for 2 more years (server LTS had 5 year support even before). just updates for progammes and bugfixes not anymore. but they are not coming in anyway.

Since noone has mentioned this yet, I have to chip in the classical "if you don't like Unity, have you tried Xubuntu?'

10.04 is so outdated, I know that it is LTS, but who cares that they provide support for old softwares that are n versions behind? (Many people worry about Adobe abandoning flash yet Adobe promises 5 year support, why? It is the same idea)

I have used 10.04 two years ago and I cannot imagine downgrading back, too many things will not work, too many features not even available and too many programs perform subpar in comparison to what we have today. If you don't like Unity use another DE or another flavour of Ubuntu. You have to upgrade anyway in next April when support runs out. Not saying that you must have the latest and greatest, but still using 10.04 is extremely conservative IMO (unless you have old hardware on which the newer releases don't work)

I personally never like the two panel design and the "classic" menus, it is so last century, but DE can always be changed.

i run 10.04.4 on my main 1.8ghz C2D 2gb RAM workstation (old I know!) as well as my server (old dell dimension 8200) which runs MythTV (3 analog tuners as TWC still transmits analog signal over the internet line), transmission-daemon and Sabnzb+. Everything is stable and just works. Why would I upgrade? I run 12.04 on a Sony Vaio laptop.

WHen I get new hardware I'll upgrade but for now everything works and that's the way it'll stay!
