I think I like xfce. I've had issues with every OS and it takes me a while to really like an OS. I've stuck with Xubuntu longer than Bodhi, Mandriva, and Kubuntu. Ubuntu 9 and 10 were good enough to for me to completely replace windows on my only computer. However, I've got MS Office 2007 to run pretty good on Ubuntu and Xubuntu. I do wish I didn't have to use MS office but it's the best at what it does, I think.
So far I like Xubuntu and I think I'll stick with it. I'd like to start making dock bar widgets, eventually.
