Xfce "Every major release of the 4.x series of Xfce has been pretty major. 4.0 was the result of over a years work, a major rewrite of the entire desktop. 4.2 saw the introduction of major features and enhancements that were incomplete for 4.0, and new developers as Xfce4 gained popularity. 4.4 is going to be a major upgrade to Xfce, with new components, major upgrades to old ones, and more tools for developers. So, without further ado, let's take a look at what's coming."

The UNIX tradition is to have specialized, modular components that make up the desktop as a whole.

I think KDE is more unified than Windows especially with KParts etc. And I disagree about being unified being unUnix-like. Having all your applications linked together is like having pipes between bash commands inseatd of writiing everything to a file and processing every seperately. I think the concept of Unix is to unify and work together seemlessly (e.g. NFS mounts behave like a local harddrive).
