Is this really needed?[edit]

It's possible to install Xfce on virtually every Linux distribution, just like all the other popular desktop environments like Gnome, KDE etc. So each of those DEs could get a template, and then all those templates could be added to pretty much every Linux distribution article on Wikipedia, resulting in a lot of clutter. I think a list or a category of distros that support Xfce or use it as their default DE would be much better. --WakiMiko (talk) 19:09, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Historically this template was developed to replace a long list of distros that use Xfce that was in the Xfce article. The navbox format was a way to keep it down to a dull roar and at the same time provide navigation between distros with this desktop in common. We have been attempting to limit the template to "bluelinks" which makes it relatively small. - Ahunt (talk) 19:50, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
IMHO this should be a category, like e.g. but name it accordingly. User:ScotXWt@lk 22:31, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
As noted above this was a compromise alternative from a long list of distros included in the article, so think it does serve a good purpose. - Ahunt (talk) 13:03, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
