Yes, indeed. I installed it on my old laptop (P-III 650MHz, 256 MB RAM). With
XFCE having both Firefox and Thunderbird opened, it uses just a bit more than
200 MB of memory and everything works fastly.

I tried to install Xubuntu but had problems activating the e100-NIC. And the
Prism-based WLAN PC card did not work either. So, I decided to go back to
SUSE and install 10.1 (with the NetworkManager) and XFCE.

Me not, either. But I managed to get XFCE up and running within minutes. But I
would love to see a group of people to go to the time and effort of improving
XFCE on openSUSE.
