Thanks for all the good replys,...(and so sorry to have been away from my computer for awhile,..and not seen them until now).
I did install Xfce onto the regular Gnome Mint,...and I must say it's a LOT better than Xubuntu for sure! IMO
I had been toying with the idea of using Zenwalk,..(because of it's Xfce interface and symplicity)...but I am actually liking Mint (Xfce)..and don't think I'll switch .....(except maybe to get the official Linux Mint Xfce edition.). It works so well,...and has the all that great Deb and Ubuntu repositories too.
