the other day I did switch from GNOME to Xfce on my Debian (Sid) desktop
machine and asked on IRC about some recommendation which distro ise
Xfce-friendly and several people suggested Fedora besides some other
distro I already spent sufficient time with.
Moreover, another user which I appreciate a lot also told me he is
Fedora user…Did some reading, few test installs under vbox (trying
VoidLinux, openSUSE Leap/Tumbleweed, Fedora 24/25-beta) and today ended
wit f25-beta on my 2nd machine (netbook).
Here I want to thank all the people who helped me “discovering” Fedora
after many years I spent with Linux. It is superb distro, very serious
and polished one and, for me, it’s kind of “sweet spot” between
traditional distros with old/stale packages (ala Debian stable) and
rolling distros ala Debian/Sid, openSUSE Tumbleweed etc.
Afaict, Fedora’s upgrade policy seems as great mechanism!
Finally, I’m thankful to all of you taking care about Fedora/Xfce
considering it’s not the 1st choice of Fedora users, but Xfce
definetely deserves to be available for such a fine distro. ;)
 I am Linux user since ’99…started with SUSE, then spent more than
10yrs with Gentoo and Arch (almost 50/50% of time), then Debian, some
dabbling with Free/PC-BSD, then some more openSUSE and finally Debian.
In this endeavor there is no loss or diminution,
and a little advancement on this path can protect
one from the most dangerous type of fear.
