Linux Lite 4.0 Features

I like to talk about features. Even you can read a complete list of new features from the official website, but it is great to have our own experiences.

Great Desktop Experiences

If you don’t like GNOME or KDE Plasma, you may fall in love with Linux Lite 4.0. The Linux Lite desktop is based on Xfce which is lightweight and very responsive. If you are Windows users, you will love the traditional menu on this distro.

Linux Lite 4.0 comes with new default theme Adapta and Papirus icon set. The Adapta is a nice theme as well as Papirus icon theme. But to me, the text size seems too big. For example when I open Settings, the icons are too crowded. It’s not critical but would be better if it more spread out.
