Xfce "Every major release of the 4.x series of Xfce has been pretty major. 4.0 was the result of over a years work, a major rewrite of the entire desktop. 4.2 saw the introduction of major features and enhancements that were incomplete for 4.0, and new developers as Xfce4 gained popularity. 4.4 is going to be a major upgrade to Xfce, with new components, major upgrades to old ones, and more tools for developers. So, without further ado, let's take a look at what's coming."

Xfce 4.2 is a really nice desktop here - fast, never bugs out, dependable, fairly modest requirements, does what I need, neat, clean graphics. It's a great alternative to Gnome and KDE where the bugs just keep on coming and your HD is sprayed with apps you'll probably never need. And then there is KBear, the crashprone app that should come with a free scrip for prozac. Both Gnome and KDE seem to have gotten so sprawling that the teams can't Q&A them properly anymore.

If XFCe 4.4 is a good as 4.2, it deserves to do really well. Looking forward to it.
