There are many answers to this.

First, while 2.0 has been and many actively use it, my impression
(please correct me if I'm wrong) is that end users are not generally
using it yet. If you like messing around with your computer, or are
prepared to do an OS upgrade, by all means, upgrade to 2.0. 

Second, (contradicting the above) most distros have GNOME2 packages now.
Most notably, RedHat 8. There are also frequent development builds that
can be found on RedCarpet from Ximian.

On the other hand, if you are content with what gnome1.4 offers and
don't like upgrading things all the time, wait for GNOME2.2.
