Weird. I've tried it twice recently - once on Oneiric, once on Linux
Mint Debian Edition. Both times I really disliked it and removed it
again PDQ.

The bottom panel/dock thing is just irritating and extraneous. It
didn't cope with 2 monitors properly & there were no config tools to
fix it. The top panel was weird, like a Windows taskbar but mutated.

In time I could have fixed all this, probably, but why bother? LXDE
works and looks smart and it's businesslike and simple and just does
what you need, with no frills.

But if you hate GNOME 3 & Unity, and want something that looks like
GNOME 2 & have the time to config Xfce to be what you want, it's
probably just the job.
