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.

Considering ditching GNOME.

I ran XFCE at work for about two weeks back around 2003, I think. (It was before Thunar) Eventually, I decided I missed some things from GNOME, and went back to that.

Now I work at place entrenched in, and requiring Windows, (Which sucks so bad it's not funny. I got used to running Linux at work! Now that Linux isn't an option for me, I realize how -bad- Windows is for productivity.)

Anyhow, I'm wondering if it wouldn't be worth giving XFCE a go on my other system at home.

Thunar was the final piece of the XFCE puzzle for me. Since playing with it, XFCE's replaced KDE on all my PCs.
