Re: When did Xubuntu become so awesome?
Also use Xubuntu, love it, and agree. The rate at which "third party" devs are contributing to Xubuntu reminds me of Gnome 2 just before it was axed. The more people use a DE, the more the knowledgeable among them want to develop for it. Two nice additions: Theme Configuration and XFCE Theme Manager. The other additions are all the nice applets that are beginning to show up.

It's going to be interesting. XFCE has a reputation for being lightweight. With more users and success, there's going to be a push for more features.
