Mate has come a long way since it was first released for Mint. It seems to work very well in Ubuntu, and it gives an experience virtually identical to gnome 2. I think it will be around for a long time simply because so many people were attached to gnome 2. And you can install it alongside gnome-shell or Unity, as its packages have been renamed so as not to cause conflicts with gnome-shell.
....But,even that fallback option won't last for long,i just hope that Gnome2 "fork" (different devs,same stuff) MATE dekstop doesn't go bust....
