I'm a big big fan of XFCE. 4.4 is gonna be a killer release. It looks so good, Thunar is so awesome, all the little apps that come with it work fine, etc.

If you want the fastest modern DE give it a try. It's worth it. I suggest you to try it with Xubuntu 6.10 too, because it's one awesome linux distribution.

Perfect setup for your girlfriend = Xubuntu 6.10 + XFCE 4.4 + Microsoft fonts only (make a fontconfig script to get rid of open source fonts ;) ) + Firefox (with Flash) + Rhythmbox (and all the gstreamer codecs) + giFToxic (Gnutella) + aMSN + gnome-games. She will be in heaven!

Awesome, isn't it? Look at how beautiful this thing is! For the first time ever, my girlfriend didn't complain at all ;-)
