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.

xfce4 has a much smaller memory footprint than kde. it'll run a slower processor too, but by how much is anyone's guess/annoyance. if you want a lusch configurable lightweight interface, xfce is it. pretty too, very geoshell esque.

still, aint nothing like FluxBox, or, if you wanna bite the bullet, OpenBox-"it-adheres-to-more-standards-than-your-apps-will"-3 is always an apt-get away. but thats just me.
