    Give Ubuntu a try; the new Unity desktop environment fixes most of the usability flaws in Gnome 2. Highly recommended!

    XFCE is 17 years old.

    That's dosen't matter... XFCE, like all actively developed desktops get updates and new features. So XFCE 4.10 is new as it was released a couple of months ago.

    But the look, modern kernel, and libc6 >=2.15, have made some features work very well. I wish they were at FC18 for the packages tough.
    Are you sure about that?

    [andrew@builder RPMS]$ ls | grep fc14 | wc -l
    6665
    [andrew@builder RPMS]$ ls | grep fu201[23] | wc -l
    19201



    There aren't very many FC14 packages remaining in use today, but there definitely are some. We are at or past Fedora 18 for a very large number of packages. We aren't compatible with FC18 mostly because of systemd.

    For a classic desktop with the latest apps, get Fuduntu!
