(sounds like an introduction to something like XA ... Xfce Annonymous!
I've liked using Xfce and with the latest upheaval regarding Gnome and Unity, it is looking like a safe haven in comparison. Not to mention, my systems are still kinda old and having problems handling the 3D/transparent-everything type desktop environments (not that I don't like them, I do, but they are havoc on lower-end systems).
Currently I am planning on installing Fedora Xfce spin as Gnome-shell keeps crashing on my system (Fedora and openSUSE) while Ubuntu (and derivitives) won't work because their kernel all require PAE and my laptop doesn't have that.
What I am hoping to gain here is tweaks and themes to customize and set up my Xfce to be just the way I like it while still being able to run what I want/need and maintain stability.
