Xfce "Today, after 1 year and 4 months of work, we are pleased to announce the release of the Xfce desktop 4.10, a new stable version that supersedes Xfce 4.8. In the 4.10 cycle we mainly focused on polishing the desktop and improving the user experience in various ways." A detailed overview of the changes compared to Xfce 4.8 and Xfce 4.10 preview releases can be found in the ChangeLogs. Xfce 4.10 will make its way to your distribution of choice, but of course, you can always download it and build it yourself.

I used Gnome as my primary desktop until v3 arrived. That was the straw that broke the camel's back, and I went out to take a look at the alternatives available.

Finally the choice came between LXDE or XFCE, and the latter came out on top. It just "felt right" when it comes to usability and customization.

Some may say it lacks polish, but I could not care less. It works wonderfully and allows me to be very productive.

Yay for XFCE!
