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?

That's pretty harsh. Maybe it's just a personal preference? Font scaling has some issues on certain WMs/DEs, and Xfce in particular can look crappy when you start increasing the font size. Some of the window decoration themes simply aren't designed for scaling up the fonts. With a good enough monitor, reducing the resolution can give you a correctly proportioned, easily readable screen without goofy-looking fonts.
