I have been using Xfce for approximately 24 hours after seeing it
mentioned in the alt.os.linux.suse newsgroup, and am tempted at this
point to stick with it.  My window manager of choice over the course
of the past 3 years has been Blackbox.

My first experience of a UNIX system was a Sun Ultra 5 running
Solaris 7 and then Solaris 8, using the then Solaris default desktop
environment, CDE.  I always liked the look and feel of CDE, and
Xfce has a somewhat similar appeal, whilst being fast and far more
