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?

WIMP: Windows, Icons, Menus, Pointer. It's older than Windows 95, it's even older than the Mac. It goes all the way back to Xerox PARC, where both Microsoft and Apple got inspiration for their first mouse-driven interfaces.

That's not so say minimalism and non-standard interfaces are bad things; I've found a happy medium between minimalism and features in Openbox, but it's not for everyone.
