I love Gnome 2.8 too. If you turn on the 'desktop is home directory ' option, it's quite
productive too - for the first time ever, i find myself actually: 

a) Using the desktop.
b) Using a file manager in Linux.

I quite like Ubuntu too *submits RH specific limited sudoers file to
rawhide*. I generally dislike Debian - the timewasting install, hard for
newcomers default install, lack of balance between stability / new
technology. Ubuntu is the first Debian based distro I really, really
