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?

Apple macbook air ... And you're done.


While that may be the case in the western countries among well-off citizens it's still a losing proposition in developing countries and financially very poor areas. The need for a low-cost, high-quality desktop may have, indeed, dropped quite a bit over the years, but it's not disappeared entirely, and that's only talking about the functionality and costs -- the need for freedom hasn't diminished.
