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.

The terminal in xfce has some nice features, I have tried it out before, however switching back to gnome and I have tried out kde4.2 which has a lot of functionality.

The best aspect of all of the desktop managers is the 'choice' of choosing a different one sometimes. A change is nice, before I was required to get my RHCE I did not understand a lot of the underpinnings (still learn new things everyday), I am just amazed at how awesome the entire open-source community is and how far it has come since when I first installed Red Hat 6.0 Professional back in 1999 or so.

I am running several distro's, I am fixin to install xfce as I write this.
