Re:The past and future of XFCE

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 21, 2007 04:25 PM

as software matures it ALWAYS gets more and more bulky.


I'd distinguish 2 different things here:


  1. It adds functionality: settings manager, file manager

  2. It adds eye candy: e.g. window shadows


Also I'd distinguish between maturing, which to me is adding functionality, and ageing, which is adding junk. Of course XFCE is doing both at the same time.


But those window shadows suggest to me that the project is starting to lose its way.
