Xfce gets some lovin’

All about Linux has a nice, glowing review of my favorite desktop environment, Xfce:

But what sets Xfce apart from the more popular heavy weights like Gnome and KDE is its very low memory foot print. In fact, in the developer’s own words, the aim of Xfce is to be a simple, light and efficient environment which is easy to use and configure, stable, fast and at the same time visually appealing. And not to speak of a clean desktop. In fact, I found out that the desktop is a separate utility which goes by the name xfdesktop and the user has the option of not running it in Xfce if he chose to.

As I’ve said here many times, XFCE is awesome. I use it as my main desktop environment, and would only change to something else if I were forced to. I am not nearly that enamored with Rox, though.
