Xfce "Xfce is just as customizable as KDE or GNOME, so I set myself a goal: make Xubuntu look like Windows Vista. Though you won't be told how to achieve the exact same end result, this guide provides comprehensive instructions helping you make Xubuntu look the way you want it to. In any case, I would certainly not recommend such a setup for someone new to Xubuntu. Xubuntu is different than Windows; making it look similar is only confusing."

XFCE is not light weight?

Hmm, well excuse me for being fooled.
The implementation I have at work is certainly a great deal faster than both KDE and Gnome, unless I'm imagining that it starts faster, launches apps faster etc.?

Perhaps someone needs to benchmark it to get the real story?

I dont see how xfce can launch apps faster unless you have not much ram and KDE/GNOME tips it over that, then xfce would be faster.

A while back I was able to use xfce on a P266 with 96mb of ram laptop(last version) and it ran great. XFCE was made for that in the first place, other DE's(Like KDE/GNOME) openly admit that they need 256mb to run optimally, so there's a difference.
