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?

This seems to be the curse of "open"desktop.org.

A project that seems to have been hijacked by various individuals on Red Hat's payroll. Hijacked in the sense that opendesktop.org was about creating cross-desktop systems, yet more and more their projects require a very specific set of dependencies found either under the Gnome or udev/systemd umbrellas.

Hell, LXDE is jumping ship to QT as we speak. Merging their efforts with Razor-QT in the process.
