Xfce It took them two years, but the Xfce team has just released Xfce 4.6.0, with a whole slew of improvements. Xfce started back in 1996 as a Linux equivalent of CDE, but soon diverged from that goal to stand on its own two feet, and by now it's safe to say that Xfce is the best of the rest - after KDE and GNOME. Xfce 4.6.0 seems to cement them further into that position.

And you feel the need to advertise that? Seriously, who cares?


I do, because I agree. CDE is too good to not be updated to modern times. CDE is still the best DE ever made, for the simple reason it was the first and last DE that MADE SENSE. You didn't need to think - it just did exactly what you expected it to do.

It's a shame something like that doesn't exist anymore.
