Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Register has posted a very unfavorable review of the new Ubuntu, focusing primarily on the new Unity Interface: "That's not to say there isn't much to love in Ubuntu 11.04 with the new Unity Interface being the primary news, but even for a beta this release is way too rough. Unity - regardless of what you think of it - isn't ready for prime time and it seems unlikely Canonical will iron out all its problems before the planned final release in April."

XFCE, I do like it, but it does need some polishing, as far as looks go, anyway. It "looks" like it's in the stone age. It works as well as any DE on any OS, though.


Xfce uses the same Gtk themes as Gnome, so it "looks" as good or bad as you want it.

You wanna see something from the stone age, fire up Window Maker and run nothing but GNUstep apps.

I'm just too lazy to create any themes of my own, and everybody who's not, they don't mind the old "Start" menu world. I'm not complaining. Maybe a little, but if I really was I'd do something about it instead of complaining.

I actually do use Window Maker! I've recently made the switch to Openbox, but I still use Window Maker. I don't know why I like it so much. One of the best pages I've seen on the web is the 'Features' page on the Window Maker website. Especially the "eye candy" part. I am a fan of minimal, but I also like eye candy. It's hard to find the balance sometimes.
