Not sure I have the history to accurately answer this.  The only thing 
you can't do is edit the menus without an advanced degree.  It just 
kinda works, otherwise...

Try a live cd, vm, or install the desktop...

never trust a desktop that puts menus up top.
(actually the default w xfce too)

Absolutely faster, although I don't really like it.  It's a little dumb 
for my tastes.  I've been using Tuxcmd lately.  It could stand some 
improvements but it's solid and fast.  I'm a sucker for two panes (among 
other things).  I recall Nautilus tending to *eat* non-gnome systems.

You can't argue with the incredible lightness of xfce, though.
It will more than likely put some spring in your Mini's step.
