I don't think there will be a 'Ubuntu classic' option, since there wont
be a Gnome2. The plan, as I understand it, is to offer a Gnome 3
option, but I don't know what it'll be called, since it bears even less
relation to 'Ubuntu classic' than Unity does.

You should now have Unity and Unity 2d as options. I've heard that
Gnome 3 builds reasonably easily alongside Unity (which is now on the
Gnome 3 libraries), and I'd not be surprised if there's a PPA for it
somewhere already, but I've not had cause to try it myself.
