Thumbs up Build the best Linux desktop


Hi,

Build the best Linux desktop:
Quote:
By Mayank Sharma from Linux Format 6th Jul 2014 | 12:01

Like all things Linux and open source, users are spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a desktop environment (or DE). But this choice that many perceive as freedom, others may also see as a little bewildering and confusing.
Right after making the soul-shaking decision of switching operating systems and installing an unknown system – by hand no less – a new Linux user is then greeted with weird sounding desktops to choose from with names like Gnome (a mini-desktop perhaps?), KDE (Isn't that a double-glazing firm?) and Xfce (No idea). What veteran users herald as Linux's crown jewels, to the innocent newcomer it's like stumbling into a sci-fi convention where everyone is discussing a new TV series that you've never heard of but apparently it's been around for years.
Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

Hi,

Nothing wrong with 'xfce', especially if you have hardware limitations.
