Window Managers We're all pretty much versed in the worlds of GNOME, KDE, and to a lesser degree, Xfce, and while there are lots of alternatives, none of the smaller ones really seem to gain much traction beyond their fans. An exception is LXDE, a small and resource efficient desktop environment.

I've been using LXDE on my Dell Mini 12 with great success. My battery runs longer, all the required functions work great (network manager, audio, launchers, file browser, etc..). Granted, I'm easily impressed by DE/WM's as I run everything that isn't a browser in a console via screen, but still, I like it.
