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.

Alternative file manager.

> 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

ROX Filer is one alternative. XFE is another one. It somewhat resembles Windows Explorer or Windows Commander. According to my experience, users felt comfortable with it (and with XFce4). Homepage: http://roland65.free.fr/xfe/ -- for those who liked Norton Commander, you might like Midnight Commander.

@ Richard: I like that 6th desktop icon's program ;)
