Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

How about XFCE?

I see a lot of discussions about Gnome 2, Gnome 3, Unity... but no love for XFCE.

I switched from Gnome 2 to XFCE (Ubuntu to Arch) and haven't looked back since. It's light, stable, and I can configure it with Compiz the way I like it.

So for those who haven't switched to XFCE, what are your reasons? Just curious.
