I have a question about this statement...Why do you think XFCE is

I think XFCE can look *quite* nice.  I've quickly found and linked a screen
shot to demonstrate. [1]

I'm not sure I agree with your assertion about disrupting a serious
producer/artist however.  Just changing the UI to the point where a person's
comfortable and favoured workflow will not work would cause quite a
reaction.  I don't want to imagine the reaction if we switched to something
that was buggy where we lost functionality or it crashed often.
