The Xfce Desktop Environment
Xfce is a lightweight desktop environment for UNIX platforms. It is similar to the commercial CDE, and is now based on the GTK+ toolkit.
A strong point of Xfce is its ease of configuration - it is driven entirely by the mouse. The latest version features drag and drop, session management, translations for numerous languages, including support for multi-byte character sets, and numerous other features.
The desktop environment includes a window manager, called XFwm, the main panel, a file manager, a backdrop manager, a sound manager, a calendar, a pager module, and a GNOME compliance module.
