This section of the site publishes information about the graphical interfaces of the Linux operating system. Interfaces are divided into two groups: desktop environments and window managers.
The Linux Desktop Environment is a comprehensive, out-of-the-box shell. Typically, a desktop environment includes a taskbar, functional menus, a login manager, setup programs, basic programs, and other functional elements, including a window manager.
The Linux window manager (Window Manager) is a program that draws windows, allows you to move and resize the window, processes the user's actions that he does in the program window. A window manager can run independently or be part of a desktop environment.
MATE is a desktop environment that is a continuation of the development of Gnome 2. MATE is a balanced environment with a good set of programs and utilities and a nice classic interface.
Openbox is a lightweight window manager with a simple, minimalist interface. This window manager is not demanding on system resources and is very fast. When you right-click, the main Openbox menu is called up, through which you can call any program. Openbox is highly customizable and supports themes.
