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.

Thank you for pointing out the truth. Linux isn't so much an "operating system" as it is a kernel with a compilation tape GNU and (to a lesser extent) BSD code wrapped around it.

BSD has a solid code ancestry and is a consistent, stable family of true operating systems.

Flame away, penguinistas.
