Xfce Before we begin, here's what XFce's website has to say about itself: XFce is a lightweight desktop environment for unix-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and lightweight, while still being visually appealing and easy to use. It's based on the GTK+ toolkit version 2.

He's obviously only implying that it gives KDE a run for its money in terms of speed - which it does. KDE is slow as a turtle compared to Xfce4, especially on slow machines. Xfce is a great alternative for people who don't like any of the *box DEs but want their old machines to run fast and look good.
