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.

RE: Fluxbox versus XFce4

IceWM offers the advantages of both Fluxbox (speed and small size) and XFce (start button/menu, taskbar, shortcut keys for full-screen/etc., familiar layout). It also integrates well with ROX-filer. Sure, IceWM doesn't have all the GUI-based configuration tools of XFce, but there are 3rd-party utilities for all that.
