    Don't underrestimate also LXDE. My nephew tried XFCE and LXDE and
chose LXDE. And the current work on LXDE's file manager (pcmanfm) will
bring it to much better state than XFCE one (thunar). So some people
definitely will migrate to LXDE instead of XFCE. May be even some XFCE
people will migrate to LXDE. And people who want to contribute into
GNOME2-alike stuff are welcomed into LXDE as well.
