For a Gnome 2 experience I can recommend Mate as desktop. So if you
just want something that works with little or no fiddling go for Linux
Mint 13 (based on Ubuntu 12.04 which means long time support) with Mate
desktop. My every day desktop at home runs Debian Sid with Mate desktop
1.6. Since Mate desktop is a Gnome 2 fork everything works in Claws
since GTK 2 is Claws' backyard.
