Hello there. After lots of years with KDE but running into more and more trouble since 4 came along I decided to switch to something more streamlined. So I went with XFCE and I'm enjoying it. The base system is Gentoo just like the years before. My pc feels a bit more responsive. Still a lot to learn and/or find out but no deal breakers so far. Took some time to get past the captcha...
But what is the animal on the background?
