| for the two major desktop environments on Linux, KDE and GNOME. This comes
| from the fact that Xfce usually uses less resources, comes with applications
| which offer basic functionality and clean, simple interfaces, and the general
| performance of Xfce is better, at least when it comes to memory cost, than
| both KDE or GNOME. Xubuntu uses Xfce and very often it is recommended for
| older hardware which can't handle the latest releases of Ubuntu or Kubuntu.
