Xfce No doubt, all of you have heard of Xfce and those who haven't will hear about it soon anyway. I remember trying out Xfce for the first time back on SuSE 9.0. I am not sure if it came with the distrobution or if I downloaded it. At the time 9.0 came out I remember thinking to myself "nice, good potential, could be eyecandy, fast..." but I still logged into KDE upon booting. Sure I tried Gnome but somehow for a windows-commer KDE was more user friendly at the time. Update: More screenshots of XFce.

for the desktop icons, use gmc

I'm like a lot of people, I need it (in fact I can't live without having my mess on my desktop) so I wonder if it's possible to run xfce with gmc (the old gnome 1.x file and desktop manager) I used to use it with enlightnement and windows maker so I presume it may be possible...
gmc is fast (but has not been updated for 2 years), drawing desktop is really fast and maybe it needs to be more compliant....

you know what ? once I get 2mn I'll try that : xfce+gmc+enlighetnment....
(plus gmc is for me better than nautilus in handling archives and vfs)


it's a shame the gmc code bas has been dropped in mc source tree in favor of.. nothing.
