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.

Buy a better computer

To people discussing what will run on lower system requirements, why bother? Memory is dirt cheap now, there's no reason not to have 512Mb. People who have time to install and configure all these obscure WM clearly spend most of their days on their computers. If that is the case, why not just go and buy better gear and use what make them more productive and not what runs best on a 486 SX 66Mhz with 8Mb of RAM?

I also agree comparing XFCE to KDE is silly. They have completely different aims to each other. Saying that, I do not see why you would want to use XFCE to give you a partial desktop environment to work with.
