At the moment, it seems that Xfce's goals are in line with what I want as a user: a really dull and boring desktop environment that will look roughly the same in 5 years from now and that I can rely on not to be overhauled in some subsequent release to take it in a radical new direction. But it is going to be important for me to review the goals of Xfce before I rely on it in the longer term. For now, it's an interim "quick, I need GNOME 2.x back" solution.
