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.

XFCE4.2 rocks -- you must try it!

I have been using XFCE4 since it came out and I love it. The speed is awesome. I had previously been a KDE user but when I upgraded to Fedora Core 3 linux it seemed to be getting slower. XFCE4 requires a little customization and tweeking but once you do that it is amazing. I would never go back to KDE now. Some suggested changes: change default browser to Firefox, make Nautilus file manager, add spice to your icons by installing SVG support and using the latest KDE SVG crystal icons. Man it makes your system look sharp.
