Whonix Anonymous OS shifting to fully support xfce by default

Hi There,

Its good that we are shifting to use xfce as we were using KDE but its really slow to run it as VM distro, so i hope this will be enjoyable for xfce fans:

(testing phase)

Hello and welcome.

Good news about the switch to Xfce.
I'm curious. What were you finding slow about KDE? Was memory allocation to the VM causing the poor performance?

Thank You!

Well yeah seems to be that , actually the whole VM or Tor Browser will freeze up due to just opening 8 tabs in it. which is really annoying , plus it needs 1 GB ram at least to run properly which really hell for a VM distro for old machines.

You should consider switching XFCE out for a desktop that uses less memory and has good traditional design, such as LXDE.
