There are some that try to hold on to Gnome 2 (there's even a fork) but it will get harder while time passes by and more and more applications use GTK3.
Linux Mint developers have recently revealed that they are working on extensions that will make new Gnome look and feel more traditional way. Will it make disgruntled users happy? Will Mint replace Ubuntu as #1 distribution? I for one am sure going to try it out."
