I never really used MATE except when it was still called Gnome 2. I liked it back then. But today I'd prefer Xfce if there is an officially supported version of the distro I want to run. KDE is also very good, probably better depending on what you want to do. I never really got into Gnome 3.

Is MATE any good? Was looking at it as possible replacement for my vanilla Ubuntu gnome I have been using for ~7 years now

Is kde still resource heavy? I always stuck with gnome and xfce.

>>125470 KDE is more lightweight than gnome now, last time I checked.
Canada Bernd 2021-10-26 19:48:17 ⋅ 11mn No. 125481
>>125479 Good news. I know gnome has been adding unnecessary features in the last few years but I haven't had the chance to use any ganoo/linux flavour for some time now. t.might install mint

KDE apps are good enough to be used on windows, not many such cases from open sores software.

>>125431 xfce long time user, because MATE theme preferences are unnecessary complicated and I prefer Thunar as fie manager, but since xfce started to use hardcoded icons for their programs, that also look like drawn by a 12 years old I'm pissed off at xfce, too. So I just stopped updating my system alltogether ad will probably switch to either KDE or Mac OSX in future.

MATE suffers from lack of developer attention In my experience, minimal Gnome installation uses 500MiB RAM, KDE 500-600, if you have >4GiB of RAM neither will be worrisome >>142004 not really, the difference between XFCE and KDE is like a 200MiB of RAM tax for a lot more functionality and customizability
Italy Bernd 2022-03-19 22:41:55 ⋅ 6mn No. 142017
>>142013 200MB RAM is a lot when your laptop has 1GB RAM.
Portugal Bernd 2022-03-20 00:01:01 ⋅ 6mn No. 142027
>>142017 at that point even xfce is bloat, though. I'm guessing you're already running 32bit OS? openbox should use considerably less resources than xfce.
Italy Bernd 2022-03-20 12:44:48 ⋅ 6mn No. 142103
>>142027 Yeah, I'm running an old Linux Mint 32bit release because my laptop doesn't support 64bit. I used Crunchbang years ago, and that shipped with Openbox.
Bernd 2022-03-20 13:44:11 ⋅ 6mn No. 142116
>>142027 Isn't openbox abandoned? Regarding OP question: I'd prefer XFCE over MATE. Haven't used both of them for a while, but I've used XFCE for some years before switching to tiling WMs. But since I'm using wayland nowaydays, XFCE is not even an option anymore.
Portugal Bernd 2022-03-20 18:14:15 ⋅ 6mn No. 142233
>>142103 crunchbang was just debian with openbox, and the current debian release still offers 32 bit binaries!
