That I dislike Xfce as an environment, doesn't mean that for my
self-made environment some parts of Xfce aren't useful. We have got a
choice, we could install Ubuntu from the server image and install
whatever WM we like, install what ever we like from Xfce and replace
what ever we dislike by something else, let alone that my daily used
distro Arch Linux supports this strategy much better, than a minimal
Ubuntu install does. I don't know what is the best approach regarding
your needs, skills and available time, but there are without
doubts options to customize your environment to your needs.
