Linux Mint is worth a look. I have Mint 11 Debian Edition in a VM, as my work 
environment. While I miss some of the KDE3 features, it's a very usable GNOME 
2 environment.

Mint 12 is Ubuntu based, but without Unity. it has 3 main options, GNOME 3 
with MGSE (Mint Gnome Shell Extensions), regular GNOME 3 and MATE. MGSE is 
supposed to give it a similar feel to the old GNOME 2 and MATE is a 
continuing GNOME 2 development (Trinity for Gnome?). I have had a quick look 
at Mint 12 and it seems nice, but I haven't done more than kick the tyres.
