What's so wrong about just plain Gnome really? Ok perhaps Gnome+Thunar could rock better, possibly... But what does XFCE have to with it all? I do not see Gnome and Xfce as the same thing at all. Don't get me wrong, I do love XFCE and that's what I use on my EeePC cuz it's lightweight and all. But that's the whole point! It's lightweight! That's why we need it as it is. If you replace it with Gnome then what's left of XFCE?? How can it become #1 If it's gone already? I don't get it.

IMHO, we do need both as different entities. Gnome on the powerful desktop (with Thunar, if you wish), and XFCE on lower specs devices.
