It's personal preference. Install some things, use what you like.

You can have several DE's on one system. Just test a few and later remove the ones that you don't like. Or setup one basic system, and test the DE's in Virtual Machines. Fedora 22 comes with Gnome Boxes for virtualization.

Yes, you are right, MATE is a continuation of GNOME 2.
