I wish people would stop automatically prepending 'lightweight' to Xfce by default. Not that it is not lightweight but the implication usually is that KDE/GNOME isn't. Based on my testing, out of the box i.e. KDE is very 'lightweight' too these days.

I think perhaps 'minimalist' would be a more appropriate term here?


@hamjb @MatejLach I do agree that Xfce isn’t really lightweight anymore, certainly not as is was at its inception, but I am not so sure that “minimalist” is the right word either. As a long-time OpenBox user, something like Xfce does not seem particularly minimalist to me.
