Wolf Linux has released a potentially controversial review of XFCE, KDE & GNOME, bringing some cause for concern, as the review may upset folks who use Manjaro Linux.

The 2,300 word review examines the high points and low points of the Standard Desktop Environments for Manjaro, in the pursuit of providing comparative review of the standard Manjaro desktop environments for Manjaro users. In typical manner though, a certain element of the review is set to spark discontent amongst Manjaro users.

Below is a portion of the review, which neatly exemplifies the controversial element:

XFCE stands for XForms Common Environment. It's the minimalist's best friend, characterized by its lightweight nature and high efficiency. XFCE prioritizes function over form, offering a clean and straightforward interface that focuses on speed and resource-efficiency. It's a powerhouse for older machines or any hardware with limited resources. Remember that charming old-school feel of classic Linux? XFCE embodies it.

XFCE brings to the table an interface that doesn't fuss over frills. Like a rugged off-road vehicle, XFCE is built for resilience and efficiency. The design is straightforward, with a classic panel-based layout. It allows for convenient access to applications, system notifications, and basic settings. However, some may find its interface a bit dated. While it lacks the sleek modernity of GNOME or the dazzling aesthetics of KDE, what it misses in style, it makes up for in speed and resource efficiency.

Wolf Linux has been a provider of thorough reviews in the Manjaro Linux Configuration (Preferences & Security) for three months..

Wolf Linux has stated the future aims for the website are to expand into wider understanding of various Linux distros, ultimately developing one with security and capability in mind. So Wolf Linux hopes any controversy will pass quickly and re-emphasizes no offence is or was intended.
