From his discussion of the best Xfce distro of 2016:
Xfce is probably the healthiest, most vibrant desktop environment in the Tuxsphere at the moment, and it seems to be gaining momentum. Some other, bigger rivals do steal most of the spotlight, but Xfce is no longer a fringe player. There’s serious, modern quality in this platform, and it’s showing.
Hope the Devs see that!
MX-16 (based on Debian Stable) with Xfce 4.12.
Xfce is getting a great momentum, positive reviews are all around the web: the elephant in the room is a mouse! (you can quote me on that)
