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.

I am not running XFce even though I have it installed but mostly KDE. So the following screenshot is from KDE... anyway, it shows how my desktop is with a panel that does not cover the whole screen. I place XMMS on the side of it... and on my laptop that is widescreen I usually have both amaroK and kopete on the side of it up on the top of the screen. And about fullscreen... in that case It will cover the panel but if my mouse touches top side of desktop the panel will show. It is usable for me and now that I am used to it I probably wont have it another way (except as the tracker is in BeOS up in the corner).
