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.

RE: It might be easy to use, but a hell of a chore to install

"But let's pretend that I had tried to install it from the source. It wouldn't probably have been all that different with most other distributions out there, either."

Most other distros (and *BSDs too) have native packages (sometimes both source and binary) for XFCE4 and, hence, installing XFCE4 is no more difficult than installing any other wm/de.
