Manjaro is an Arch based Linux distribution. It comes with many Desktop environment options. I just downloaded and installed Manjaro 0.8.12 Xfce edition. Its a nice, simple Xfce desktop with the power of Arch Linux. Manjaro 0.8.12 comes with Xfce version
Manjaro 0.8.12 comes with XFCE version 4.11 and it feels very smooth even on VirtualBox as virtual machine. If you own an old PC or laptop, you can try to install this Manjaro 0.8.12 Xfce edition on it.
The Xfce menu is pretty straight forward, easy to access all installed applications based on category.
