Following on from the Linux Mint 20 beta MATE and Cinnamon editions videos I just did on the channel we now have XFCE. Linux Mint 20 XFCE appears to share the same suite of applications that are available on the other 2 desktop environments apart from anything that is specific to XFCE. For example the default file manager on the XFCE version is Thunar. In this video I do a run through of the desktops look and feel and see how the new Mint features have been implemented in their XFCE desktop.
It features the same one panel layout at the bottom of the screen across all three versions. I personally prefer the XFCE panels over what you get from Cinnamon and MATE as I feel they’re a bit more malleable for what I want to achieve and I prefer the whisker menu.
That brings me to the end of my first look of the new Linux Mint 20 desktops. You can see what I thought about Cinnamon and MATE here and here. I will be awaiting the final release to take a more in-depth look and share my thoughts with them on the channel. Which desktop version do you prefer out the 3 available ? Let me know in the comments below!
