I'm using the Cinnamon desktop, it's an adaptation of Gnome 3, and it's available for Ubuntu. You could give it a try?

Welcome to LFO.
Linux Mint is a good refuge for those who don't like Unity. It's based on Gnome 3 but the MSGE gives a more traditional feel to the desktop. It also comes with a MATE (Gnome 2 fork) desktop that gives you the old style Mint interface and Cinnamon is a simple install away. On the other hand, if you are generally happy with Ubuntu, there are the alternatives such as Xubuntu, Kubuntu and so on."I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
It'll happen to you too."

Ubuntu 10.04 is long term support, but even that must eventually be replaced. Try the xfce or lsde desktops instead of gnome.Registered Linux user #526930
