"The Equinox Desktop Environment, EDE
This is one of my personal favorites, it utilizes primarily the
FLTK set as opposed to GTK or QT, and has a very light resource
usage footprint. In look and feel it resembles primarily Windows 98
or 95 but with some features the Win9X series of operating systems'
desktops would have been far better had they had (like search from
the taskbar and multiple virtual desktops). Equinox follows the
UNIX philosophy where each part of the DE is split into its own
small executable that does only one thing and does that one thing
"The Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment, LXDE
This is one of my least favorite, but has come a long way in a very
short period of time. LXDE is somewhat generic, and like EDE has
pieces that can be used independently of one another."
