Xfce Okay so it took them two years, but hey, good things come to those who wait. The Xfce team has finally released version 4.8 of their Gtk+-based desktop environment. This release contains a lot of work under the hood, as well as a number of new features.

You still can use the old versions but at some point,the Linux desktop UI needs to be dragged out of the 90s, and GNOME Shell is doing it.

Personally, I think GNOME Shell is on the right path, especially with CSS and Javascript but XFCE will always be there for the traditionalists.
