GNOMEstalgic: An Interesting Take on the MATE Desktop

Been playing around with the different layouts in Ubuntu MATE recently and was feeling a bit nostalgic for GNOME 2. So, I created something that is kind of a like a mashup between GNOME 2 and 3.

It sure is hard getting used to these old keybindings and not having an easy search menu, but I'm actually surprisingly digging this set up. I'm so used to the Unity/GNOME 3 keyboard bindings now that it's actually quite hilarious watching me try to work!

Maybe I'll keep it around a while though, you never know!

EDIT: I also posted it over on reddit to see if I could get some great responses!
