On my machines I use SolusOS (Debian+Mate) & Xubuntu (Ubuntu+Xfce). Both are fast to boot & snappy to use with small memory footprints whilst still retaining all the GUI funtionality that you could need. Even on my Core i5 machine the Gnome3 & Unity Shells are noticeably slower to boot and more memory hungry.. to what end?? The ergonomics of these GTK+ 3 shells are pretty awful. I mean if you really must have type to find then just install Cardapio or Synapse.. problem solved you can feel leet..
No announcement yet.
Xfce 4.12 Planned For March, GTK3 Still Uncertain
