    Holy crap I am waaaaay too late to the party to snack on popcorn now!

    This thread must be a record breaker for patsies and trolls. It's actually quite amazing, and hilarious.

        Yep, I expect fast performance without GPU acceleration. Can't take a compromise on this one, as I really like low-powered computers.

        I also have Xfce on a USB stick, for rescue situations. It helps a lot that it can start fast from a USB. That's why most USB-based distros pick Xfce. And a lot od modern laptops have only eMMC storage. Xfce starts fast from eMMC, but KDE does not.

        Also, Xfce Panel has a deskbar mode. Windows has got this feature since Win95. Last time I checked, KDE doesn't have it. It is a real screen space-saver on a laptop.

        KDE Plasma is a good desktop. But it's heavyweight.

        For some people, KDE Plasma is going to be a better choice, and for others Xfce is going to be a better choice.

        If you are dependant on eyecandy, choose KDE Plasma. It's not called Plasma for nothin'.
        Want tons of features? Choose KDE Plasma.
        Want essential desktop? Choose Xfce.

        By giving users correct and usefull descriptions, we can help each user to select a desktop which fits him best.



        Probably you are right, but I dislike Gnome 3 so much that I can't help myself.
        You are trolling. XFeces is not lightweight or fast. If you wanted something lightweight and fast you would chose LXQT or even fluxbox or i3 window manager. XFCEs is as heavy as KDE but lacking in both features and eye candy . KDE has a desbar mode and can be used without a compositor.

          You must be trolling, there is no way you can be such an SJW cuck.

            Ok, retardxfce, this is too much. Instead of apologizing you post this crap.

            Ill try, with every power that I have, to get you banned from this site forever.

              (does not work on Intel...)
              Whoaaa! thanks a lot tildearrow just built latest xfwm4 using that change you said and I don't need to use the "Force Composition Pipeline" feature of the nvidia driver now to get a tear free experience

              For anyone interested this small sed code does the trick:
              Code:
              sed -i \
                  's|glXWaitGL();|glFinish(); glXWaitGL();|g' \
                  src/compositor.c
              Edit: still get some tearing on initial scrolling, but works better than before, will try with xpresent disabled.

XFCE looks like Windows 95 and I've always had issues with how KDE looks OOTB for example. If you install Cinnamon from repos it doesn't hold up to the Mint default (which is admittedly nice).
                I do agree with this here, these desktops could do a way better job delivering a nice out of the box aesthetic experience. As much as I hate macOS for window management and other things, their desktop started to look real nice at 10.10 with the big changes from 10.9 and previous. Just my opinion. A lot of the Linux desktops looks pretty dated and amateurish by default, and many can say what they want, first impressions matter and many get turned off by this.

                  I partially agree with you, ALL ****XFCE**** posters should be banned, including the original "debianxfce" who has been trolling this forum for years and the admins do nothing about it. This creature ruins the forum, causing many people to leave or not take it seriously.

                  A recent example of a user who left because of debianxfce's toxic presence.

                    The post was about suggesting that sweden and swedes are stupid or not smart for giving help and welcome those in need.
                    They did absolute nothing...and my post wasn't about them...but I can see how you're not able to conceive or understand that kind of reasoning !

                      How truly dumb and naive. Using Xfeces rots your brains.
