Pardus and Xfce: a bright and powerful parade

Filed under
Linux
Software

Pardus has been around for years, and occupies a luxury-car niche in the Linux world: easy to install and configure, extremely stable, very friendly, and very KDE-centric. Pardus has traditionally had only the KDE desktop, so I was surprised—and thrilled—to learn of the existence of an Xfce version.

Early Impressions

The Xfce Pardus looks like the KDE Pardus, if you ignore little things like software selection and Plasma Desktops. At least the desktop backdrop is the same. Gone is the lush maroon of the 2009 series, replaced by a dignified dark gray surrounding a baleful gray leopard (Panthera pardus is the Linnaean name for the leopard). If the maroon of past versions was too warm, this might be too cold. The Xfce desktop is arranged like the one I described in my Foresight review—the menus and taskbars are in the same places—but it is clearer-looking, and the fonts are nicer out of the box. Pardus has always made a fine visual impression, and this is no exception.
