Alternatives to KDE and GNOME on Linux systems

7:44 AM

Before anything, this article is for those using KDE and GNOME and start feeling the need for more, or something else. This is not a trolling article (we hate that), nor is a rant against the two DEs. We respect the freedom of choice, and the Open Source world is all about freedom of choice. With this article we only want to show you what other options you have, the pluses and the minuses, with no bias whatsoever. We'll go less than technical with this article, and we hope we'll widen your perspective and help you use something that's really fit for your needs. All you need is a working Linux machine and the minimal knowledge of knowing how to install software on it, plus the use of an editor of choice. Since your DE/WM is something you work with every day, it's more important to your productivity than it could appear at first look. You may have to learn some new commands, but if you feel it's right for you and it makes you more efficient, it will be worth it. Plus your system will run faster, since KDE and GNOME are full of features for everyone, but that comes with a cost.

This is a really good overview of the different desktop environments available besides Gnome and KDE. If you feel the need to try something different, then read this article. You won't regret it.
