Xfce After more than two years of development, Xfce 4.4.0 has just been released. Xfce 4.4 features new tools such as the much awaited Thunar file manager as well as several improvements in its core components. Benedikt Meurer had also prepared a tour for the newcomers.

"Define 'bloated'."

This bloated discussion is just sooo stupid. There is nothing wrong with Gnome or KDE, it's just an other approach of desktop usage. The direction Xfce has chosen is 'minimal but still usable'. If you don't like this approach, feel free to choose an other desktop environment (or a mix of them), you HAVE that freedom on Linux/BSD so use it!

It's a bit silly to say Xfce is not good because you're using KDE, Gnome or whatever. Other people are happy with Xfce, so what's wrong with that?

Maybe the memory usage of Xfce is a bit lower, it starts 1 second faster, so what? Most important is you're happy when you start you're computer and it suits your needs!
