    I am happy that Debian is swtiching to XFCE. It would be fitting if they switched to MATE instead as they almost have all mature packages that gnome2 already had. Accessibility issues are there in XFCE.

    MATE has not made into Debian repos yet. But only if it did…..

    I’m a Fedora/CentOS users, I finally decided I can take no more of GNOME3. I tried to like it, I tried to make it work, I really did. Tried for months thinking maybe I would get use to it.

    I just switched to Xfce and instantly fell in love with my desktop again.

    I’m a long time Debian user. I got fed up with gnome years ago and started using JWM. I like simple and lightweight. Gnome is complicated and heavy. Gnome configuration reminds me of the Windows registry.
