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.

> I just can't decide between fluxbox and xfce

I have to agree with the above poster, Fluxbox is simpler.
I must admit I have used Fluxbox for a longer period of time than I have used Xfce, but there's a reason for that. Xfce has loads of potential, and I will definitely give it a go again, but as of right now Fluxbox fulfils all my needs for a DE, and with even less bloat than Xfce. I don't know why they even bother with their filemanager.
