Linux Mint 15 Olivia Xfce - Almost awesome

Filed under
Linux

All right, here's another Mint article. Basically, we have covered pretty much the entire spectrum. Two reviews of the Cinnamon version, one on a somewhat lower end laptop, albeit with SSD, and one on an Nvidia-powered machine. Next, A MATE review. Then, we looked at the KDE edition just a few days back. Now, it's time to examine the Xfce flavor. But before that, ask me, what did I think of Mint so far?

Well, the Cinnamon version is the best by far, and it shows. MATE is not that far off, and the KDE one lagged a bit. Not that it wasn't good, it wasn't what you would expect from a Linux Mint release. Now, for the first time ever, I am going to take a look at the Xfce version. Never done that before, so it should be interesting.
