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.

If you say "I talk out of my ass" then you surely deserve little respect. I wrote my master thesis running XEmacs under FVWM on a 486 with so little RAM I can't even remember the amount. When I compiled the kernel on that machine I could go for a long coffee break. I can assure you XEmacs took a *long* time to load, so you don't even need to start talking "Firefox" and other modern applications. So before you say "I talk out of my ass" I suggest you take a good look at the mirror and think twice before writing insulting comments.

I know what old machines can do. And if you reread my post (that is, assuming you can comprehend what you read), you will notice that for older machines I suggested FVWM. Not KDE. Not Gnome. Not XFce.

Please add something to the discussion besides showing up your "attitude".
