What's everyone's favorite desktop environment to use with NX?

It's a known bug that Unity won't work with Ubuntu 12.10 and there's no more ubuntu-2d. gnome-classic and gnome-session-fallback crash the X server on my Macbook.

I've installed Xubuntu/Xfce4 and that's the only one I can consistently log in to, though I'm running into the issue with libcairo2 needing a downgrade which I'd rather not do. I also suspect that any desktop environment I could get to work would have the libcairo2 issue.
