Problem about xfce (I am using that too temporarily now) is that it
does not have an applet to manage network connections. Can be a hassle
when you are using it on a laptop. I am using nm-applet with it for
now.

learn *something* new and less usable than KDE3 it seems worth considering
Gnome.

I'd be interested in hearing from those who use it and what their experiences
are.

Thanks,

Though I prefer gnome, it crashed (on openSUSE 11.1) some time back (I
was trying to make some changes & add a shortcut to the desktop, also
trying to restore a missing 'My Computer' icon using GNOME
Configuration Editor (gconf-editor), when it suddenly crashed, and all
desktop icons disappeared, have not been able to fix this; thro'
Google search, apparently some others have had a similar problem with
Nautilus crashing in openSUSE 11.1).

So, I tried the XFCE DE. XFCE has a simple user interface and is easy
to use and customize; in addition to being stable (in my linited user
experience). Would be good though if they updated the online
documentation (last update is for ver 4.2, in 2004).
