You can’t be serious. Xfce is way more different from GNOME 2 than GNOME
3 classic is.  

If those users are satisfied with Xfce, that’s very good for them, and I
agree Xfce is of very good quality.  However, it still lacks a number of
features and for many use cases, you need pieces of GNOME with it.
