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.

Xfce and fluxbox...

XFCE is a good DE/window manager. I definately like it and itīs really easy and fast (in comparison to those big DEīs) to use. Many smart things. I recommend everyone to try it.

dpi you mention its easier to use XFCE then fluxbox, because of the icons. Iīm sure there are more advantages, but you can just set up some icons on the desktop in fluxbox to let the non tech people start programs too. Just look at http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/ for example, they got icons on desktop.

I use fluxbox, coz itīs very snappy on about every pc, easy to use (the tabs ,.. ), and beautiful . Freedom of choice is so nice in GNU!
