Have been loving the Xubuntu install, took a little getting used to after us
diffrent flavors, and mainly kde/plasma. But I'm loving XFCE, it is it's own little X environment, has been a little learning curb for some things, but n
that I have it configured to my liking, it's just sweet!
I have been using XFCE for years now when it comes to needing a GUI in Linux. It has been my #1 choice in the desktop enviornment because of it being lightweight and customizable. I never really did any theming with it but there two themes that I liked: Numix and Greybird.
I tried other desktop environments. Not sure where GNOME is going now-a-days, looks too much like iOS. MATE doesn't look very modern, to me. Cinnamon looks too Mac OSXish. KDE/Plasma is just way too heavy for my taste, and not a fan of LXDE. Unity is too heavy as well, not a fan of requiring a 3D accelerator in just doing day-to-day tasks.
Currently, I am using XFCE on Antergos (Arch Linux based) and I like the Numix theme it comes with and the Arch Linux philosophy. I was never a fan of Ubuntu's ecosystem and out-dated software.
Code it, script it, automate it!
