“XFce 4 is a Desktop Environment for Linux, *BSD, and other Unix-like systems. It’s light, stable, modular, visually appealing and easy to configure. It offers a panel with detachable menus and many useful plugins, a full-featured window manager, a background manager, a taskbar, a centralized settings manager, a frontend for printing, a GTK2 theme-engine, a file manager with Samba browsing and mount/umount capabilities, drag and drop and fonts anti-aliasing support, and KDE3/GNOME2 native interoperability… Moreover, XFce has been translated in many languages.”
The long awaited version 4 finally came out on 25 september 2003.
Just like the more popular KDE and GNOME, it is a Desktop Environment. It’s power lies mainly in it’s speed, while it doesn’t look bad. It is designed to cooperate with the standards of Freedesktop.org.
