The problem with "fallback mode" is that it it is inferior to GNOME2.

The problem with clinging to GNOME2 is that the GNOME project will no 
longer develop it, so unless someone forks the whole kit and caboodle, it 
will eventually die off.

I am so happy with LXDE that I wish I had switched sooner, but until 
Fedora 15 came out I had been contented and familiar enough with GNOME2 
not to make the effort to evaluate alternatives.

All this is my personal experience, preference and opinion of course; it 
is for each to make his or her own choice.
