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.

Nice for lightweight needs

I needed a nice, lightweight WM for a fairly old laptop. I started out using Blackbox, then Fluxhox, but was elated when I found out about Xfce. It also didn't take nearly as long to install fron ports (FreeBSD) that Gnome/KDE did. It definitely gets 2 thumbs up from me.
