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.

> it's filemanager could be better, it's too cluttered and it's nearly unusable IMHO, it's a very weak point for a great DE like XFCE

Don't worry, you are not the only one to think that ... XFFM sucks. The first thing I do when I install XFCE is to remove XFFM and to replace it with ROX Filer (which allows desktop icons for those who are interested in this feature) which is probably the fastest, lighest, FDO compliant file manager. ROX Filer is even popular to some XFCE developers who use it in their screenshot ;)
