Xfce Before we begin, here's what XFce's website has to say about itself: XFce is a lightweight desktop environment for unix-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and lightweight, while still being visually appealing and easy to use. It's based on the GTK+ toolkit version 2.

Best way to try XFCE - FreeSBIE
by CdBee on Mon 10th May 2004 20:42 UTC

If you want to try XFCE out without having to install a *nix OS to your hard drive, have a look at FreeSBIE - http://www.freesbie.org/

It is a FreeBSD Unix LiveCD distributed as an ISO - within 5 mins of downloading it I was in XFCE playing with settings.

Here is a screenshot: http://www.freesbie.org/images/20040224.jpg

I couldn't get online with it as this version (1.0) doesn't have a driver for my nForce2 motherboard's onboard networking, but your mileage may vary.
