If you’re ready for life without KDE or Gnome, maybe it is time to try Xfce, a lean, fast, and eye-catching desktop with a large collections of tools.

In January of this year, the Xfce project released version 4.2 of the Xfce desktop (see Figure 1). Like most alternative desktops, the Xfce desktop is faster and easier on resources than sprawling systems like Gnome and KDE. But Xfce is far more advanced than many of the alternatives. The Xfce 4.2 desktop, which is compliant with Freedesktop specifications, provides several useful management utilities, a development framework for building applications, and support for more than 40 languages. Xfce 4.2 offers a unique blend of features and performance that make it an ideal alternative for many users who want to scale down from Gnome or KDE.
