Xfce is very, very, very slow

I do not believe that GNOME or KDE applications as Roberto J Dohnert
suggests, would consist a slowness issue. I suggest to use another
Xfce 4.10 distro instead, be it a Debian derivative such as Black Lab
Linux or any other distro.

Rants and Thoughts

I recall comparing version 9.10 of the distro in question against
Zenwalk GNU/Linux, at the time it was released, and I was astonished
and heavily outrageous to see how slow, flawed and distorted the "Xfce"
flavor of that distro was by default which was also slower than its
GNOME (version 2 at the time) flavor; that distro had the same issue
with its KDE flavor.

I suggest, based on the comparison I made when version 9.10 was
released, that the defaults of non-GNOME (or Unity) flavors are
deliberately flawed in order to turn users to GNOME3 or Unity.

Even though the above assumption is irrational, I truly believe that
Canonical LTD should focus only on their costly and beloved GNOME and
Unity desktops, because otherwise they are merely perverting KDE, LXDE,
Xfce and the true abilities of these non-GNOME desktops.
