Razor-qt is a free software desktop environment for the X Window System.
The developers describe Razor-qt as “an advanced, easy-to-use, and fast desktop environment based on Qt technologies. It has been tailored for users who value simplicity, speed, and an intuitive interface. Unlike most desktop environments, Razor-qt also works fine with weak machines.”
Razor-qt is still in the early stages of development. As of February 2012 , the environment includes a panel viewer and switcher, a desktop, an application launcher, a settings center, and sessions. These components can be enabled or disabled by the user.
Razor-qt works with any modern X window manager such as Openbox, fvwm2, or KWin.
The memory consumption of Razor-qt is slightly above the one of LXDE using 114Mb in a reviewer's test while LXDE used 108Mb in a user test.
After LXDE developer Hong Jen Yee ported PCManFM to Qt in early 2013, discussions about collaboration between LXDE and Razor-qt took place.
