Xfce It took them two years, but the Xfce team has just released Xfce 4.6.0, with a whole slew of improvements. Xfce started back in 1996 as a Linux equivalent of CDE, but soon diverged from that goal to stand on its own two feet, and by now it's safe to say that Xfce is the best of the rest - after KDE and GNOME. Xfce 4.6.0 seems to cement them further into that position.

XFCE is a piece of piss to compile; it's all graphical and it lists all dependencies, giving you a tick alongside each one if you've got it. Fantastic build system, absolutely fantastic.

And XFCE 4.6 is probably what I'll use on my netbook. I started to like it more when it became more like Gnome, although I found that the previous version didn't really like my desktop computer that much.
