No I WAS not subscribed then, I subscribed just now. Thank you!!!
Is it so bad ? I mean it is updated from the official repositories and
security updates are there and so on.. So I can live with not updating
it . . . and who makes a dist-upgrade on a laptop all the time?

Can I have Debian with the good old Gnome 2?
You will need to install squeeze and never upgrade from it:
I tried MATE and it is not my cup of tea. I had lots of problems with it
on a ubuntu,.
If you want a GNOME 2 like experience, you will have to either switch
to Xfce or another desktop or get involved with the MATE or Cinammon
desktop projects and help package those for Debian.
From what I read the Cinnamon thing is unfinished and is not Gnome 2.?
or maybe he should test Gnome Classic (the fallback mode)?

Unfortunately, with Ubuntu again, I was unable to start that famous
fallback mode. I followed every step of every instruction that I found,
re-installing the Linux in the mean time and no luck, Sir, it just did
not like me. I am not so stupid for a girl but I had no luck at all.
Thank you for your help!
