Re: When did Xubuntu become so awesome?
I tried XFCE out a bit today, and it certainly doesn't feel as strung together as I remember it feeling a couple of years ago. It's not very pretty at defaults, but it's cute how open it is about the arbitrariness of its default config, too, asking on first run whether you want to start with their panel settings or just configure the panel from 0. I don't remember that being there the last time I used it. = )
Also nice: two-finger tap is right-click by default, like a normal DE, as opposed to the two-fingers-is-button-2, three-fingers-is-button-3 arrangement it used to have.
It's still weird to have GTK3 apps looking as if they're running in Wine, though. I don't approve. And at least on my machine, xfrun4 takes way too long to pop up, which seems very odd to me.
I know I shouldn't use tildes for decoration, but they always make me feel at home~
