Thanks team for keeping some of us sane!!
I like it so much I run GalliumOS on all my Chromebooks and Xubuntu on all my Desktop PCs/VMs.
I binded the windows key and arrows to move windows, but it is still nowhere near as powerful as window movement on windows 7, 8, or 10.
Press alt and drag inside a window. Left mouse for moving, right for resizing.
Those functions were expanded in Windows 10 lately too.
I haven't checked xfwm4 4.14 yet though. If these functions have been enhanced, excellent! If not, it's worth a request.
Congrats to the devs!
It's surprisingly complete and stable compared to how light it is. The EliteBook w/ an Intel 520 can't run Gnome without major slowdowns. It has some visually rougher edges compared to Gnome or KDE but it's perfectly doable to make it very presentable, and doesn't take as much resources as both of them - although KDE is not remotely as heavy as Gnome.
I really don't understand how Gnome became this monster of a thing it is today.
I still have 15 year old hardware lying around in my home and they come to a stall while running some of the desktop environments that have modernized themselves. But Xfce continues to run fine on them. It would be great if Xfce remains the way it is for another 15 years so that my old hardware continues to work for me.
(Although I use MATE with i3wm and panels disabled. I moved to MATE sometime after GNOME 3 was released and I missed GNOME 2)
At that time XFCE seemed to me like a bare bones MATE but in a good way. A little less polish here and there, but overall the system seemed to work better, that means less crashes and less fixing.
One thing I missed in XFCE is the way you can set panels in MATE. It has a lot more placement control and if I remember correctly, it had more plugins and they worked better. But apart from that, XFCE felt more solid and performant than MATE.
Last time I had a crash was.... Over a decade ago?
Not that I've used either of those desktops in years, but any crashes from a desktop seems like a major red flag.
But again I might have messed up configuration the first time around
