Since years I install and do test runs with the LXQt desktop and its predecessor LXDE already with other base distros, first of all the excellent Ubuntu-fork LSLE. And last I guess in Lubuntu. And always I came to the conclusion that this simple desktop is serviceable beyond its supposed use case … but still not comfortable enough and too anemic for this spoiled brat.
But out of boredom I tried it again, a few days ago. This time as a part of Endeavour’s vast catalogue of installable environments. Just to look if LXQt added some pizzaz to the old LXDE desktop.
Two hearts are beating in my chest. LXQt, same as LXDE, is nothing I’d ever use as long as I have access to reasonably fast computers. But I really like how it’s done and the looks and the easy peasy usage … and how speedy it works. That’s maybe the reason why I unpack this desktop every now and again, have a little fun with it and put it away again.
But now we already have the next candidate waiting for its turn. I wanna see how the pretty new distro RebornOS (another Arch derivative) handles your favourite desktop environment – Cinnamon. Really looking forward to that one.
