Xfce When we reported on the release of Xfce 4.8, we ignored a statement inside the release announcement about the lack of new features coming to the BSD world. The statement was a bit disconnected from the rest of the press release, but Xfce developer Jannis Pohlmann has published a blog post giving a few more details about the issue.

Let's look at the *nix naming convention through the other end of the telescope. I hereby would like to put a motion on the table:

GIVEN that UNIX(tm) contains substantial amounts of BSD code and tools, and

GIVEN that through the early 1980's the original "Berkley Unix" project became one of the main code providers for research Unix,

BE IT RESOLVED that all official UNIX(tm) distributions, as recognized by the Open Group, be henceforth referred to as "BSD-like" to avoid confusion with the Berkley Software Distribution and its legitimate descendents.
