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.

"Say a poor family may chose between to buy 3x a P1-200 (with *Box or XFce4) or 1x a P2-350 (with KDE/GNOME) while the family consists of say 5 kids and 2 parents. What would you recommend? What about a NGO where work has to be done? "

What does it matter? I'd be impressed if you could still buy below 1Ghz in most shops now they are so cheap. Plus, XFCE doesn't offer anything near to the facilities that KDE and GNOME do. In any practical scenario, you're going to be running KDE and GNOME applications anyway.
