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.

"Are you gonna pay some 1 GHz CPU's, motherboards and RAM for the non-profit organisation i volunteer for? We're already very thankful for receiving any 2nd hand computer part for free."

Is that really relevent to most people? I want features and things that will make me more productive. I do not use a program or DE because it will run well on an ancient computer. Most people on these boards use their computer for hours every single day and can happily afford new computer parts based on how much they use it. A family can easily buy a powerful computer today for a fraction of the cost 10 years ago. The monitor for a computer costs more than a decent CPU now! Why confine yourself to XFCE because you're too cheap to spend a few $100 on something you use every single day?
