It is nice to know that it is out there a light, useful and flexible alternative to the KDE - GNOME duopoly. And it is good to see that it is alive and well.

In fact, XFCE could be thought of as the standard GNU/Linux desktop, since it is included often in both the KDE and the GNOME oriented :-)

alternative to the KDE - GNOME duopoly

You just made me realize how obscure of a setup I'm running.

If Linux is the alternative to the Windows - OSX duopoly, and I'm running Xfce under Linux...then I'm running an alternative WM on an alternative OS.

Perhaps a little too obscure.

Awww... You're not so far away from mainstream as you think. If you said that you were one of those guys still running XFree86 on top of GNU/Darwin and using ion or ratpoison as your window manager then yes, I'd agree that you're pretty much struggling to not fit in. XD
