Feel like a change of desktop? Just came across the following posting
on phoronix:

Razor-Qt is a new Qt-based desktop environment for Linux systems.

The Razor-Qt desktop was just updated to version 0.4.0 after being in
development for months. This release improves stability of the
lightweight desktop, introduces several new components, offers new
translations, a new theme, new panel plug-ins, and much more. The new
Razor desktop components are azor-runner, razor-config, qtxdg, and
Razor own menu.

Razor-Qt is self-described as "an advanced, easy-to-use, and fast
desktop environment based on Qt technologies. It has been tailored for
users who value simplicity, speed, and intuitive interface. Unlike
desktop environments, Razor-qt also works fine with weak machines."

More information on this new desktop release can be found in this blog posting:
