Xfce It took them two years, but the Xfce team has just released Xfce 4.6.0, with a whole slew of improvements. Xfce started back in 1996 as a Linux equivalent of CDE, but soon diverged from that goal to stand on its own two feet, and by now it's safe to say that Xfce is the best of the rest - after KDE and GNOME. Xfce 4.6.0 seems to cement them further into that position.

Besides being light, fast, less needy on the dependency side than Gnome, and still offering more features, there is one other thing I like about Xfce... their adherence to standards worked out by freedesktop.org.

Open Source is great, but Open Standards and Software actually implementing it is even better...

Honestly, only by comparing it to Gnome can one say Xfce is light...
