+1 for Greybird, it's quite possibly the best theme I've found in terms 
of good looks and working with both gtk2 and 3. I didn't check the new 
XFWM4 theme, but if it's like the Greybird one, it should have bigger 
borders so they can be grabbed (else a flurry of bug reports will ensue :)

-1 for Adwaita, it's rather cartoony looking and also it's kind of part 
of the GNOME "image" which I think would be weird to copy as the default 
for XFCE.

My two cents.
