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?

future of xfce

I kind of wonder about the future of xfce. I like the DE, but I wonder if gtk2 is a dead end. And I don't really like Gnome3 at all. The thing that has kept me away from KDE is all the bloat. I don't want a bunch of apps I don't normally use, yet they are tied in. qt 5 is suppose to fix that and make things modular. LXQT is now out in beta and if it is modular, it will be my new desktop.

Linus, who hates C++, chose to have his program "Subsurface" converted to Qt because it was too hard to do basic things.

I was wonder about its future too since they are not releasing anything since April 2012.
