XFce has been a popular wm since version 3.+ => and gaining moreso. Why
do you think all the major distributions are either supporting it
directly by including it or making it easy to get for?

But yeah - I do understand the ideology you're forwarding here...and it
really isn't a bad idea...as long as things are kept free (as in beer).

XFce is definitely gaining ground on it's own merits and it's own
reputation...a good product (software or otherwise) just becomes
ingrained due to it's merit.

And I'm biased. XFce just plain rocks (for the past five plus years)
