LXQt is the Qt port and the upcoming version of LXDE, the Lightweight Desktop Environment. It is the product of the merge between the LXDE-Qt and the Razor-qt projects: A lightweight, modular, blazing-fast and user-friendly desktop environment.

LXQt 0.7.0 brings you a fast and stable desktop environment, already usable in production desktop machines. It will not get in your way. It will not hang or slow down your system. It is focused on being a Classic Desktop with a modern Look & Feel. Already available on most mainstream distributions and with partial FreeBSD support.

This is exactly what I've been wanting in this department: a straightforward, no-nonsense Qt desktop environment that doesn't shove touch nonsense in my face and, doesn't try to impose upon me a very specific way of working, and doesn't try to be everything to all people at all times.

Well, it could be worse. It could be... gasp... Mutter. At least KDE4 as a whole including KWin could always run semi-adequately on a system that doesn't have graphical hardware acceleration for whatever reason (in Linux, often due to proprietary drivers and the lack of decent free software/open source alternatives). I can't say the same about GNOME 3 with Mutter.
