I use XFce which i prefer to KDE and gnome-helix.
Its faster, takes up less memory, is easy to customize and
has a great pager and program launcher panel.
To try it just apt-get install xfce. Its from 'woody' but i
use it with 'potato'. Its really personal taste so YMMV.
XFce is a lightweight desktop environment for various *NIX systems.
Designed for productivity, it loads and executes applications fast,
while conserving system resources. XFce is all free software, released
