The opposite happens to me. Whenever I try XFCE I either find it ugly or clunky.

I could be too used to KDE for a DE change be easy

I always liked XFCE, never really "got" what KDE is about. LXDE is what introduced me to DE's and Linux though. XFCE was reasonably lightweight and easy enough to use to enable my transition to Linux.

Aside: a while ago I decided to torture myself, so I ditched XFCE in favor of dwm + assorted suckless software. Insane seeing as I lack the proper C skills and knowledge of the workings of the X Window System to get the most out of it. I still suck but I've been forced to learn a thing or two.

Anyway, if people want lightweight dwm/suckless is a good alternative.
