another 2.8 distro

If you like slackware's simplicity, and wants a good (apt level) package handling too, and wants gnome 2.8 i suggest you to try arch linux. It has an excellent live cd which makes it install quite easy, and a very friendly community. It's also just working, and very stable - and unlike debian stable it's very up to date.
