I think so too, this deserves the award.
It seems they put a lot into getting hardware detection to work.

And, I'm just using the miniEdition.

I'll try out XFCE a little more, but it seems to be more of a Window manager than a Desktop Environment.
I'd really like to give Gnome a try though. In any case it seems that KDE was not made for my system.

Optimal Performance

I have a AMD Duron(tm) Processor with 128MB RAM, and a SiS 630/730 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter.

I can barely run Firefox2, and KDE3.5 at the same time.
