Indeed - I dont mind KDE/Gnome if I was a recent Windows user however, I
prefer XFCE4 over any WM out there (with the exception of Blackbox et al).
Not to mention the the top 3 WM for bloat are KDE/GNome/Enlightenment.
I prefer the leaner, meaner WM for my needs. I understand the idea of

the main distro might be a mistake.
Nobody wants to download seperate CD's/DVD's and have to reinstall just
because you grow tired of one WM.
I would really hate to see XFCE4 left out - Just my .02 worth.
