XFCE's best features include portability and completeness. Portability: XFCE is very easy to use for most end users. When looking for a quality desktop experience, most users utilize Ubuntu, but when using other Linux operating systems it is convenient...

I really like the quick panel and all sorts of things you can do with it. The theme switcher is also really good I had to install plugins to get that feature in sublime (which I think should be a priority). Debugging is omething we backend developers rarely...
