I cannot say that I am disappointed but I would agree with those who 
pointed out that XFCE had its own distinctive layout and there is no 
reason to make it look like Gnome. Frankly speaking there are other ways 
to make a light desktop anyway. I have screwed up my xfce4 config 
recently and after removing .config directory I had to spent some time 
reverting Xubuntu layout to familiar XFCE look.
