Planet XFce

I was reading Planet GNOME, the weblog site of our big sister project ;-)) and apparently we have been noticed.

Christian Schaller mentioned the start of our weblog. He also states that XFce in his opinion is not a competitor but rather an asset to GNOME. I cannot agree more.

We use the development platform written by them and trade some features for some free memory and additional speed. In fact we owe them a lot more, including their freedesktop work and the GNOME HIG, which has made everyone much more aware of interface design issues.

GNOME rocks and so does XFce and, why not, KDE as well, although you won’t catch me spoiling my beautiful gtk2-only system with any K apps ;-)
