"No doubt, all of you have heard of Xfce and those who haven't will hear about it soon anyway. I remember trying out Xfce for the first time back on SuSE 9.0. I am not sure if it came with the distrobution or if I downloaded it. At the time 9.0 came out I remember thinking to myself "nice, good potential, could be eyecandy, fast..." but I still logged into KDE upon booting. Sure I tried Gnome but somehow for a windows-commer KDE was more user friendly at the time."

"I was a happy SuSE 9.1 user when Xfce 4.2Beta2 (at the time of writing this article the latest 4.2 release is Xfce 4.2RC1, which I am using) came out, and I decided to give it a go. They announced this whole new concept of GUI installer, which in case of Xfce (which has a lot of parts) is a very handy feature. I think that it would be a good thing if more developers would follow this pattern and hopefully make installers because it would be very helpfull for the newcomers."
