Linux I volunteer as tech support for a small organization. For years we relied on Ubuntu on our desktops, but the users didn't like it when Ubuntu switched to the Unity interface. This article tells about our search for a replacement and why we decided on Xfce running atop Linux Mint.

I used to use Gnome 3 for a few months, and now I'm using Unity for almost a year.
I like them both, but I still find the search-based application starting to be a nightmare.
Searching for apps to run is pointless if don't know their names. And most users won't care to remember the fancy names of the applications. Menu-based application selection works best because everything is arranged into intuitive categories (ie: Graphics, Multimedia, Audio, Office, System Tools).
Both Gnome 3 and Unity have an option to find apps based on categories, but they are so awkward to use that I can't even describe it.
