    Very straightfoward. The last article of the year reviews the best Linux distribution of 2016, with focus on aesthetics, ease of use, stability, and long-term support. My vote and YOUR vote, too. Happy New Year!

    And it makes sense. Xfce, the ugly duck, is in fact a swan.
    Thanks for the article.

    Great summary. Although I wouldn't vote for Mint due to security reasons.
    OH yeah, XFCE is truly underrated.

    Lumina is the ugly swan of lightweight desktops. Being QT based, it can run KDE applications.

    A long way to go before its polished but now in the 1.0 version, it finally feels like a mature desktop. Its rival would be LXQT.
