3. Want another flavour GTK+ 2.0 Window Manager?

A lot of projects are busy with porting to GTK+ 2.0 these days including
the XFCE project. Olivier Fourdan has just put up a new batch for tar
files and rpms of the GTK+ 2.0 based window manager XFCE4 and his new
GTK+ 2.0 theme engine. The XFCE4 windowmanager boast such features as
being based on the GTK event loop, support all standards
and it takes its default colors from your gtkrc-2.0 file meaning its use
of colors are consistent with the rest of your desktop.
