About XFCE

As of 4pm PST, 9% of respondants said they used XFCE as their environment.

I wonder what that percentage would be like if there were no Xubuntu.

Probably smaller, but not exactly because of "Xubuntu".

I'm Guessing most Xubuntu users already knew Xfce (I may be wrong, its a wild guess based on the ones I know).

But what I believe Xubuntu adds to the Xfce community of users is shipping the recent beta, which is way better than the old 4.2 (which I like, too... just not nearly as good as 4.4)

Exactly. I can only speak for myself but I went with Xubuntu specifically because I didn't have to build XFCE 4.4 on another distro and maintain it myself. (Yes I'm a lazy bastard). Just so happens that I found Xubuntu to be an awesome distro after the fact.
