No need to fork. Use Linux Mint.

It makes little sense to switch distro just because you disagree with
the new DE on your current one. Presumably people chose Ubuntu for
reasons other than its use of Gnome 2 (especially given that pretty
much every other distro also used Gnome 2).

And there *is* a need to fork if what you want is the old Gnome 2.0.
It's no longer maintained by the Gnome foundation so any ongoing
maintenance will almost by definition be a fork.

If what you want is something like Gnome 2.0, XFCE does a pretty good
impersonation, and is worth a go. Install the package xubuntu-desktop
to give it a go without hosing anything else.
