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?

Member since:

The need for a desktop has diminished. More apps / services are accessible with a wider range of clients .. IPads Chromebooks android phones...

The role of the desktop is now to simply provide access to those apps... And take care of things like power peripherals

Death of the desktop predicted. Film at '11.
