Xfce *is a desktop*, so if you are running Xfce, then your desktop is
Xfce. It's possible to run the Xfce window manager on its own, without
the rest of the desktop -- e.g. a version of Crunchbang did this --
but it's very rare.

This article shows where to turn 3D compositing on/off in Xubuntu:

If you built it yourself, then what factory provided "the
factory-provided images" you say that you used? I am a little

Do you simply mean that you installed from ordinary ISO files and did
not compile your own system from source?

If so, that's normal. Mostly, only Gentoo users compile their own systems. :-)

They are impressive, but one of the things that I like about the
Raspberry Pi is that it isn't limited to only Linux. There are many
other OSes. One of mine runs RISC OS, for instance.
