If the message tells people to select 'gnome classic' in the logon
menu to make it go away then that seems reasonable to me.

(I've never seen this message as I switched to XFCE before gnome3 came

I'd be happy if xfce was the default. Which is better depends if one
prefers 'dull-but-works-everywhere' over
'shiny-but-not-universaly-liked'.  I can see reasonable arguments in
favour of either.
