The 5 Best Xfce - based Linux Distributions

,----[ Quote ]
| I’ve been talking a lot about window managers and desktop environments.
| Nowadays most major distros simply go for KDE or GNOME, but it is not very
| common to see a distro use XFCE. This is a very sleek and useful little
| desktop environment, which provides great GTK compatibility and increases
| speed. Today we’ll take a quick look at which distros you should choose if
| you wish to have an instant Xfce experience.

Zenwalk 5.2 ... hello old friend

,----[ Quote ]
| While rummaging through some old CD's I stumbled upon a Zenwalk 4.2 labeled
| one, which reminded me that last year I really liked that distro, but due to
| some BIOS problem on my laptop, it didn't behave the way I liked.
|
| [...]
|
| Coming from an all KDE environment (PCLinuxOS) and experiencing XFCE for the
| first time, Zenwalk has not deceived me at all. I encountered no
| show-stoppers, was able to get everything up and running, noticed a nice and
| busy forum...
| Of course, I still need to get the hang of XFCE and look into the wiki in
| order to tweak it a bit more, but it's all part of getting to know the lady.
|
| Zenwalk 5.2 has replaced PCLinuxOS on my laptop and is there to stay. Don't
| worry Tex, I still run PCLinuxOS on my desktop :-)

Xfce 4.6 Alpha Available With New Features

,----[ Quote ]
| The final release of the Xfce 4.6 desktop environment was supposed to come
| this month, but instead the first alpha release has finally come about. Xfce
| 4.4 was originally released in January of 2007, so it has been quite a while
| since this lightweight desktop environment has received a major update. This
| release though does introduce a fair number of changes, which we have covered
| in this article.
