Torvalds Dumps GNOME for Xfce
Linux users seem to be interested in what our de facto leader uses on his desktop. In 2005 KDE users reveled when Linus said, "just ... use KDE." Later on in 2009 GNOME users returned the nose rubbing when he said, "I switched to GNOME." Well, both groups can now sulk together because Linus has switched again and this time he's "using Xfce."
Yes, once upon a time KDE was king and even Linus Torvalds, the original Linux programmer, was using it. He said, " I personally just encourage people to switch to KDE."
