Re:Linux Desktops--Suffer From Apple-itis!

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 22, 2007 10:10 PM
Number one, Xfce isn't trying to emulate Windows or OSX because it doesn't have to. It lets you change your taskbars/panels very easily, unlike Windows or OSX. If "Joe Average" is upset by this, there is nothing stopping a distribution from creating a Windows-like layout.

Is Xfce supposed to be in the business of emulating familar-yet-poor UI schemes, or trying to improve them?
