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.

I used XFCE back in the day

I remember compiling XFCE back in the day because it was much lighter than GNOME. Unfortunately it was still a bit too heavy for the weak powered laptop I had at the time so I had to go to fluxbox and openbox. Good to see they are still developing it even though I no longer use it.
