Description Pablo Lezaeta 2013-11-08 23:06:29 CET
Currently this page reads:
:: Popular examples build around Xfce are Xubuntu, the Fedora Xfce Spin and Zenwalk
Just thought i'd mention that Zenwalk appears to be dead. Latest news on their site is 2.5 years old, the package database on their site is non-functional, etc.

Might I suggest Manjaro as worthy of mention instead of the now dead Zenwalk.

The Xfce edition is the primary release and it's a nice implementation of the environment.

Also just a grammatical note; "build" should be "built".

Well, i disagree with the zenwalk comment. Following the link leads to http://support.zenwalk.org/ which seem to show quite some activity and new releases.

In that case the better action is update the description (reflection the forum not webpage thing) and the links, also update the string in the page to add Manjaro (and make translatable the bountysource string and descriptions).

Fixed with the website facelift.

I don't think Manjaro should be recommended. It has often had issues and is not 'rock solid' imho, as xfce is, although it's nice and there is some user base and interest in it, it's just not professional as for example xubuntu. By recommending it to someone who's not familiar with it, the person may be eventually let down.
