"Xfce is a lightweight desktop environment for various *NIX systems. Designed for productivity, it loads and executes applications fast, while conserving system resources." - Olivier Fourdan, creator of Xfce

Xfce is a desktop environment like Gnome and KDE. It hasn't got as many features as these but is also less demanding of system resources.

The current implementation Xfce4 is based on the Gtk+2.0 toolkit.

There are about a dozen core developers and numerous other people are contributing code, artwork and translations.
