Xfce "Every major release of the 4.x series of Xfce has been pretty major. 4.0 was the result of over a years work, a major rewrite of the entire desktop. 4.2 saw the introduction of major features and enhancements that were incomplete for 4.0, and new developers as Xfce4 gained popularity. 4.4 is going to be a major upgrade to Xfce, with new components, major upgrades to old ones, and more tools for developers. So, without further ado, let's take a look at what's coming."

Fedora and XFCE4

I have been using Fedora with XFCE4 since Fedora 2 came out. I really like XFCE since it my applications appear to startup quicker than when I am running Gnome or KDE. I currently use Nautilus to run the desktop but I am looking forward to The new Thunar file manager that comes with 4.4 XFCE. The themes in XFCE4 are also very nice looking and clean. If you are a minimalist but you like to use GUI applications then XFCE4 is a great compromise. After using XFCE for the last two years I can't imagine going back to Gnome or KDE. I would miss all the speed and low overhead of XFCE4.
