For almost 1+ year I've considered XFCE to be stable and well-optimized. And, well, it was. As minimalist, I have to note, there were two bugs annoyed me from time to time. The first one seems to appeared in 4.6.1 or 2, it was an issue with logging you out anyway once you pressed "Exit", even if you click "Cancel" later on.

Introduction

Posted 04-03-2010 at 02:54 PM by ddalley

My name is Donald and I have been using Linux as much as possible for the last couple of years, mainly to find a replacement OS for my wife's Linux netbook and to educate myself.
