The Fedora Xfce Spin is focused on providing a complete, well integrated Xfce desktop.



Detailed Description

The Fedora Xfce spin showcases the Xfce desktop, which aims to be fast and lightweight, while still being visually appealing and user friendly.

Xfce is a full fledged desktop using the standard.

Benefit to Fedora

The Xfce Spin is of great value to users on older/slower machines as well as a number of folks that just prefer it to alternatives. It also works well as a base for users who wish a even lighter desktop setup.
