Review: Lightweight Desktop environment LXQT 0.9: After 1 year, Is it ready?

LXQT is a light and usable desktop environment. It is almost ready and I believe by Lubuntu 16.04 will be the default selection for DE choice for our OS. It is essential to look forward into the future and thats what made me choose LXDE with a potential to transition to LXQT in the first place rather than XFCE. The few crucial bugs that I had encountered were fixed shortly.

There are a few quirks as stated before and some software look somewhat old-age, consider VLC being based on QT, look at its mac comparison and the linux comparison. GTK software like libre-office look out of place but we can’t do much about it. Theming seems to help a little.

Also, right clicking on the desktop is a basic feature that is needed and requested by many users. I hope it is implemented in the next release. Continue reading
