Five reasons to try the new Razor-qt Linux desktop

Razor-qt is a lightweight desktop environment that’s based on the Qt framework, much like KDE, and it is “tailored for users who value simplicity, speed, and an intuitive interface,” in the project’s own words. Now, with this latest version 0.5.0 release launched late last week, the software has gotten even faster thanks to “huge performance optimizations” on the desktop, according to the official changelog.
