    Thumbs up for XFCE for staying sane and staying out of my way most of the time. XFCE is exactly what a desktop should be, small, simple, (very) configurable and helpful instead of a integrated mess that tries to do everything for you.

      I also like XFCE a lot. It does exactly what it should, no more, no less.

        I agree, XFCE is a great DE and I use it extensively since the demise of KDE 3.xx and Gnome 2. Long may it continue!

          Xfce4 from Git Master (Fully Gtk3 and running on Fedora 28). Compiled last night. Been using Git Master for quite some months now.

            I wonder if they'll have it ported to GTK3 before GTK4 is out...

              KDE 3 isn't fully demised. It lives on in TDE. Yes, I know it doesn't have the development power that MATE has, but there are frequent commits and they've added support for modern hardware in the last couple of months (like screen brightness keys on laptops, for example) and it's rock solid.

                I absolutely love XFCE. Only DE I use besides it is i3 when I feel in a tiling ultra minimal mood. I tried Gnome 3.28 a bit back and it was very nice but XFCE does it for me. I first got hooked on it with ubuntu studios heads up layout.

                  Been using xfce forever. I see no reason to use anything fancier even on an i7.

                    Yeah, I used Trinity for a short while soon after its release but moved on soon after. Haven't looked back since switching to XFCE, it does everything I need, stays out the way, and looks great after a bit of tweaking.
