    I entered the Linux world with Mint 8 (Helena), switched to Ubuntu 9.10 a month later and used Ubuntu up to just before 11.04 release and moved away from that and to Xubuntu. Xubuntu 13.04 is now my main Linux with Mint 15 Mate coming in a tight second.

    Once you go Xubuntu, you never go back.

    this has been pointed out by many Ubuntu Developers/Testers it maybe do to all the patches for Xmir it just has Lag and is 1/2 broken, and now has Facebook ad's Ubuntu no longer has alpha's remember all of it package's are built at the same time and its on a Daily Build

    Why? For some of us, there's nothing more comfortable than XFCE. At least, that's my case. I don't think Unity is bad (some of my friends LOVE IT), but it doesn't seem to fit me well. As you said earlier, matter of personal taste.
    Actually, I must thank Unity and GNOME 3, because before I just used GNOME 2 and thought XFCE was a half-assed GNOME for lower resources; I'd never had discovered how good it is (for me) if I didn't dislike those (in comparison to GNOME 2) :P

    The Alpha releases seem kind of superfluous to me. The people who run the dev branch of Ubuntu use/test it as a rolling release, so a release candidate or two should be suitable.

    As for Xfce), I use it because I love it and I too would run it on a system with a 4770k, Geforce Titan, etc. About the only thing I don't like is the infrequent video tearing, and I may try to run Weston on top of it to solve that.

    You may like Compton as well.
