well thanks knosolelover , i googled ur keywords and found that people are appreciating XFCE more than GNOME-3 .
Am i correct ? I decided to install XFCE instead of GNOME-3 . (Neglecting - future update will not include new items in the ubuntu desktop set) .

Pls give ur review .
and "If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut." - Albert Einstein" - so true .

I'm no expert to review any product(grin). It depends on your personal preference. I have heard that Xfce is lightweight and fast. BTW i use GNOME 2 on Ubuntu and Arch without X.
Einstein is infalliable(didn't feel good about new research on anti-nutrinos relating to speed of light lol).

My very quick review:

XFCE is quite similar to GNOME2. If you liked GNOME2, but don't like GNOME3 or Unity, then XFCE is definitely worth trying.

I use LXDE. On the plus side, it uses fewer resources than XFCE. On the minus side, it lacks some of the features found in XFCE (and GNOME, Unity, and KDE). It's a trade-off I'm willing to accept; YMMV.
