Wil XFCE be added as an alternative, or will it wipe out my current
desktop? At the moment I can log in after selecting Unity, Ubuntu
Classic etc. I would like to try XFCE, but I would like to be able to
switch back to my current GNOME desktop, with all my icons, launchers
and what-have-you still intact...

Regards, K.
