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?

I can attest to the issue with polling rate, although I have it with compton & xfce. When I move a window, compton tries to render/update it 1000 times per second, despite my refresh rate being only 60. It causes a lot of CPU usage and even jumpy movement.

Setting it to 100hz fixes that and makes XFCE+compton the fastest OpenGL composited desktop ever for me.
