Xfce Okay so it took them two years, but hey, good things come to those who wait. The Xfce team has finally released version 4.8 of their Gtk+-based desktop environment. This release contains a lot of work under the hood, as well as a number of new features.

I believe this is because the lack of vision the people behind Xfce have.


They probably aren't trying to be a desktop environment for the masses. They could pick a better name and focus on gaining more popularity, but why should they really?
Being smaller has advantages. I would prefer a small, loyal and contributing user-base over Ubuntu's large user-base anytime!
