Sure, but at least you don't have to deal with gnome-shell and still run

Yep, but GNOME2 is still supported upstream, at least for now, and I will 
use it until it is finally dropped by the GNOME project. I don't need 
additional features or enhancements just security fixes.

And now you mention a fork, there are two projects focused on this: mate 
and exde, IIRC.

I'm a bit reluctant in changing to XFCE. I migrated from KDE4 to GNOME2 
and now I feel very comfortable in this environment. Being like a "nomad" 
is fine for young people that want to taste new experiences, I prefer a 
quiet home :-)
