Xfce "Although I have some doubts that XFCE is 'so very much lighter' than GNOME (GNOME 2.20 doesn't take too much memory if you don't start all kind of crap), it is still lighter, and in a few years there will be less and less antiquated computers who require extra-light window managers (Fluxbox, Openbox, Blackbox, WindowMaker, IceWM). XFCE is reasonably mature, and constantly improving, so it has all the chances to become the mid-weighted Desktop Environment of choice pretty soon! What is XFCE needing to reach the Nirvana? Here's the way I see things."

Well, I have to say that saying XFCE should not use Mono because it generates files with a Windows-related extension is, well, silly.
I was especially surprised to see that this is the first thing mentioned in the article.

In fact, I was expecting the article to mention some thing regarding enabling extension through a scripting mechanism of sorts, and work more on the framework, helping 3rd party developers to develop applications/applets for XFCE.
