    Xfce is simple enough for little kids, which is why it was the basis for the Qimo for Kids desktop. But it's also sophisticated enough to appeal to the rest of us. It has an easy, elegant point-and-click interface with editable menus, panel applets that are easy on the eyes and effortless to configure, and it's feather-light on resources. What's not to love?

    I don't like it. Thunar is just weird and it is buggy and old fashioned.

    Xubuntu is OK. So is Mint's XFCE, which closely resembles the other Mint releases. Untweaked XFCE is unimpressive aesthetically and, to me, doesn't have any advantages over the other panel-based DE's.

    It's touted as light weight, but I don't see that. Besides, apps require the same resources everywhere.

    I don't mind Xfce or Lxde but right now a plain Openbox session (with Thunar as file manager) does all I need. I'm playing with rox-filer on the side but it needs quite a bit of understanding.

    I like xfce better than Unity. I think I prefer it to lxde and openbox too, but I haven't made a final decision.

    Change it. I use pcmanfm with xfce4 myself as I'm not wild about Thunar. Consequently, if I based my like or dislike of xfce, which is what this thread is about, on its file manager, I wouldn't like it either. Just the contrary, I love xfce4.

    Not liking Thunar does not really equate to not liking xfce.

    I love how configurable and tweakable Xfce is. You can make it do almost whatever you want. Love that kind of freedom.
