Given the very slow development of Xfce in contrast to Mate, I wonder if with the generalization in the near future of Wayland then the arrival of Gtk 4, if the distributions based on the Xfce environment should think migrate to Mate.
This is the path I took myself, and I am amazed at the result. I have almost exactly the same appearance, especially with the arrival of the Brisk-Menu. In my opinion, today Mate is a safer path than Xfce and has a more certain future. Mate 1.18 will surely be one of the best version and will do a lot of twists to Xfce.
Should not Manjaro think of going to Mate for his flagship?
What do you think guys?
PS: This is only my thought and this doesn’t reflect the Manjaro team.
