Xfce It took them two years, but the Xfce team has just released Xfce 4.6.0, with a whole slew of improvements. Xfce started back in 1996 as a Linux equivalent of CDE, but soon diverged from that goal to stand on its own two feet, and by now it's safe to say that Xfce is the best of the rest - after KDE and GNOME. Xfce 4.6.0 seems to cement them further into that position.

XFCE = Gnome minus what?

XFCE paint themselves as some sort of Gnome lite, and they do share a lot of infrastructure with gnome, such as GTK and GSttreamer.

However, I have been unable to find out what is it that makes XFCE 'lite', in their website or elsewhere. What does Gnome have that is missing in XFCE? What would I miss if I switched? Can somebody point me to an explanation?
