Interesting, your comments. 

I really think that Xfce is getting it.  They did a great job 
with the installer.  Works like a charm.  And the filer is 
really making great headway. 

However, as much as I keep trying to like and use Xfce, 
I keep returning to IceWM for it's speed, simplicity, staying 
out of my way, and just getting work done as much as I can, 
along with Kde for it's apps plus Krusader 1.51+.  

XWC has it's good points.  For a minimal setup, the old Midnight 
Commander is probably the least resource intensive of all the 
decent file managers.  But, there are many, many strong 
opinions on file managers.  There really is nothing to do but 
give some of them a try.
