1.  Project Description

Xfce is a fast, lightweight desktop environment for Unix-like operating systems. It is designed for productivity, and is quite configurable while still adhering to the Freedesktop specifications.

Unlike heavier desktop environments, such as Gnome and KDE, Xfce uses far fewer system resources. Additionally, it offers greater modularity and fewer dependencies; it takes up less space on your hard disk and takes less time to install.

The Gentoo Xfce Project aims to bring the current and complete Xfce desktop environment to Gentoo. We maintain the Xfce libraries, key applications, and various add-ons that are part of the Xfce desktop.
