Don't you mean Trisquel 7? Unless we're talking about the next release? :-P

Anyways, I voted for XFCE. When I setup my system with Trisquel, I basically use it like Debian and went with a minimal net install. Then after that was done, I installed XFCE, my programs and tools that I like, and compiled a newer version of Linux-libre.

It works well for me. It's not exactly what one would consider the easiest out of the box experience, but it suits me and is tailored to my needs/likes.

I did consider using a tilable window manager such as i3, but for the programs I use as well as my workflow, it just made more sense to use XFCE. It's light, and stays out of my way.

I think the default Trisquel environment is good for people who want a no frills desktop that works well out of the box. (Don't get me wrong, I think it's well done.) Me personally, I don't like branding much; nor am I a fan of Gnome fallback, so I opt for something else.

My two cents. ;-)

Ah, I'm the only one who voted GNOME fallback so far......

I'm not voting on this because it requires some kind of JavaScript code to work, and I've already answered in the other thread anyway.

Maybe, but remember that this thread isn't about how to set up a given DE but what should be the default one in Trisquel 8. Whatever is chosen as the default desktop for Trisquel 8 will need to be added (by someone) into the repositories if it's not there already (like Pantheon.) Trisquel's default desktop should not involve people having to go enable third party PPAs, etc.

Yeah I agree, I don't what dodgy repos in my repos sources list.

I recently have discovered and enjoy ICEWM with ConnochaetOS 14.1
Works well on gNewSense Alpha Ucclia ...might be rather retro look but it uses only 140mb of RAM and with some amazing softwares...very reactive,no polished shiny stuff,press button gui.....

I totally agree with Calm Storm

Although i think every desktop environment should be available on the dvd and net install

I would say to use MATE by default since it will be officially supported. I've grown to like Unity and I heard that the Amazon dash search and online information sharing will be disabled by default in Ubuntu 16.04/Trisquel 8: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/12/dash-online-search-to-be-disabled-by.html

PLEASE INCLUDE THEM ALL! EVERY ONE OF THEM!
Please! I will end up installing them all anyway, and I switch fairly frequently.

I use KDE primarily, because it can do anything, and it does everything. But for my family I set them on GNOME 3, because it's so simple you can't mess anything up. For really old hardware I occasionally revive, I use the lightweight DEs.

For my tablet that I use for school, I switch to Unity.

Actually, the only DE I *don't* use is that default Trisquel gnome fallback thing. It's ugly and buggy and not really good at anything (sorry!).

I see a lot of GNOME Shell votes...I wonder how many of those are default GNOME Shell (great DE....but after a rather steep learning curve which I don't think Linus Torvalds has bothered with (neither has RMS but he doesn't use the GUI) and how many are RedHat-style GNOME Shell.....

I don't think there is one. Fedora used stock GNOME Shell last time I checked (no extensions, no styling, not even different icons).

Red Hat, as in RHEL, not Fedora. (Oh wait....is that what fallback basically is????)

That's a screenshot of GNOME Classic, an official set of GNOME Shell extensions that's supposed to make it feel more like GNOME 2.

Ah mistook that for something more like the early GNOME fallback then (a completely different thing)........

(1) I voted for Gnome Shell.
This is for the "regular" or "main" edition.

(2) And there should always be Trisquel mini with LXDE for computers with low resources.

Hello.

My English level is not good. I like much the LXDE desktop because it consumes very little and it is possible to personalize. Also I like the Mate desktop, and Gnome3 too.

I believe that the dektop environment for the next version of Trisquel is LXDE for Trisquel Mini and Gnome3 or Mate for Trisquel normal version.

The links are three captures of my desktop. I use Trisquel 7 LXDE.

Sorry for my bad english.

I would still use GNOME, but make Trisquel 8 more modern-looking (Like windows 10 and mac os), But it still will be a 100% libre OS!

Anyway I think XFCE may be a great option for the Mini edition - based on my small experience of using the Compaq TC1000, I think any relatively light window manager (used in non-madly-heavy desktop shells) that can move windows like this should work:

Xfwm4 seems to do that( https://askubuntu.com/questions/574024/how-to-disable-windows-contents-to-be-moved-on-dragging-so-that-only-a-frame-i https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kLOVwBMO2vA/VL6UtfbgjNI/AAAAAAAABjk/RZtq5aGk08A/w640-h400-p-k/xfwm4-wireframe.png ), but I couldn't get Openbox to do that (not with Obconf, anyway). So going with XFCE wouldn't be a bad idea....

Having never actually tested XFCE on old hardware though....I don't know.

I remember some old test that concluded that xfce is barely lighter than gnome 2.

Perhaps instead of having Trisquel and Trisquel mini we could just have Trisquel and metapackages and instructions to install the dozen DEs and window managers that are in the repos.

To some people a 2 year old computer is old. To some old means 12 years old.

Trust me I know what old is - that C(non-2)D HP 6320p I used for a while isn't really all that old.

The TC1000 is more than 12 years old..... (it's that Tablet PC with a Transmeta Crusoe)

I remember some old test that concluded that xfce is barely lighter than gnome 2.

The only important thing is that it'll run fast enough....Maybe I'll try XFCE on an old (P3) PC and see how it runs there.

But again, based on my experience with the *14-year-old* TC1000, my idea was that the ability to hide window content when moving/resizing it seems to me to be the most important factor to speed - which is more important than how much of the system resources is taken.
