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.

Might be not so light under the hood, but what I am asking is this: is it important at all? What need do these "light" desktop environments serve at all?


I think some people have the nostalgic idea of still running on decade old hardware, probably without a modern web browser.

For the rest of us, there's SSDs and tons of RAM.
