Just installed Suse 12.1 with Xfce. I've used Xfce occasionally in then past, but I'm delighted with the fit and finish of the current version. It's *exactly* what I envision as the perfect desktop - not bloated with unnecessary bells and whistles and complexity. Please keep up the good (no, make that great) work. I spent 37 years in IT and firmly in the KISS principle.
I'm also openSuSE 12.1 and recently switched desktops from KDE to Xfce. I used openSuSE's xfce patterns. I removed a couple of programs that I knew I wouldn't be using. I can't believe how fast I setup my desktop. I *love* the program launchers on the panel! Overall: nice, clean, fast, easy, intuitive, customizable to fit the user's needs.
Just wanted to say thanks, too.
Yeah, we're just alot of KISSers here who 'love' the features.
