Xfce Over the past several years, mobile devices have greatly influenced user interfaces. That's great for handheld users but leaves those of us who rely on laptops and desktops in the lurch. Windows 8, Ubuntu Unity, and GNOME have all radically changed in ways that leave personal computer users scratching their heads.

One user interface completely avoided this controversy: Xfce. This review takes a quick look at Xfce today. Who is this product for? Who should pass it by?

Who's definition of "traditional"

I find it really annoying how a lot of people use the word "traditional" to refer to the Windows95 user interface.

Well, here's some shocking news:

WINDOWS 95 WAS NOT THE FIRST OPERATING SYSTEM OF EVERYONE ON THE THE PLANET.

Some of us consider "traditional" to be SunView or Indigo Magic Desktop (SGI), which, hello, look nothing like Windows 95.

To me, the Windows95 interface is about as alien as it gets as I've never had to use one for any length of time.
