"In 1999, I realized that the main problem with Xfce was XForms
not being free. Many distributions refused to include Xfce because
of its dependency on XForms. Thus I decided to re-write Xfce from
scratch, using GTK+, the well known graphical library : That's Xfce
"Xfce 3.x has a lot more functionalities than Xfce 2.x (not even
talking about Xfce 1.x), and GTK+ provides very intuitive widgets.
Thanks to GTK+, I've implemented drag and drop (which was missing
in XForms), increased configurabilty, etc."
"Now, some people see Xfce as a free CDE replacement. It's much
more than that. First, it's not a clone, as it's not based on Motif
but on GTK+. It doesn't feature all the stuff of the original CDE,
but it's so much more easy to use and configure."
