personally, i like it, ad use it when i can, although i ahve to run back to kde from time to time, expecially when a distro doesnt include an option for it.
it does seem to run faster than kde or gnome, although you lose a little eye-candy.
also, i think xfce is classified a d/e (desktop environment).

enjoy you linux experience, make sure to post...

Make sure to post the same subject only once. Double posting is against the rules and makes the mods really mad

XFCE is great, except that icons on the desktop would be better.

It does seem to launch apps faster, and certainly loads itself faster on boot up.
