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?"

I totally disagree with giving 3 computers to 1 family. If these people are poor I'm sure they can do without the energy cost of 3 computers running. Nevermind kids wanting to play computergames all the time, which is no good for anyone.
Rather get them 1x p2 350 with XFCE ;) or just 1x a 200mhz ...

That's my tought, but I have no practical experience in this matter. I'm very interested in these things though and I want to do something like you do. Do you guys have a website

By the way...Windowmaker is a good option next to xfce too... it's actually quite a lot faster. And it has very useful features. But I'm sure you know it ;)
