A New Spin on the Xfce Window Manager - page 4
Fedora's custom Spins (Live CDs based on Fedora's latest stable release) are an excellent way of testing a new desktop environment, some cool developer tools, and even some content that can't be found anywhere else (e.g. videos from FUDCON). The XFCE Spins are available in x86 and x86_64 formats.
Xfce is a minimalist desktop Window Manager that is fast, fun, and efficient to use. Xfce is a viable alternative to other minimal desktop environments such as twm and Fluxbox. It is customizable but also has a kiosk mode for those of you who want to deploy a desktop environment that isn't customizable by end users. Originally for kiosk operations, some system administrators are using the Xfce kiosk mode to provide an unbreakable Linux desktop to employees.
