Let me second you.
I for one have fled from Gnome (on my FreeBSD workstation, - once the
upgrade made me switch from Gnome 2 to Gnome 3). I need the job done, and
want my GUI User Interface be what was perfectly suitable for long time. I
do not care of its looks or fanciness of "ultimately different" user
experience. Therefore I fled from Gnome to mate. (The decision was made
after 2 weeks of frustration of doing in Gnome 3 the work I usually was
doing on my workstation)

This is just my $0.02 (and note, this is from me, the one who is "not
ready to join ipad generation").

Just on a side note: I question intelligence of an attitude that something
(that works for some people) has to be destroyed to make room for
something else one thinks to be more appropriate.
