I've been lurking from time to time.
Preferentially using Xfce4 since about 2007.
Currently running Manjaro and Refracta.
Learning to prefer Thunar.
Of all the traditional DEs, I prefer Xfce, too. I like its stability and customization options. It's pretty open-ended for a traditional DE, which makes it fun to use.
Welcome! (I'm new here as well.)
Every 6 months I wipe my system and install Gnome and hate it, then KDE and hate it, and come back to XFCE because it is the best balance of speed, features, and simplicity.
I used Linux for about 10 years now.
I have used Xfce DE, since my first day with Linux. I have tried all the OS-Distros that use Xfce, as default .
I like most of the Xubuntu and Mint versions. Debian-7 Xfce is better. (more stable) Arch/Linux is the best.
