Xfce provides a lightweight desktop environment with default icons and
themes. First it is completed with a desktop manager providing icons,
next with multiple panels for a default menu, preferred applications
and extra plugins, and a window manager with Xorg's composite feature
for transparencies and shadows. Moreover it suits a session manager for
startup and shutdown functionalities, and a settings manager for global
Xfce components and general items.

Xfce provides common applications, designed to be lightweight too for
the desktop environment. These applications are: a modern terminal
emulator with tabs, an iCal based calendar to notice events and
appointments, and a mixer to control the volumes. Some Xfce
applications comes with a panel plugin. For example the calendar
provides a plugin to show a customizable date, and the mixer provides a
control on the master volume.

Finally Xfce provides end-user applications, always designed
lightweight, which are: a simple and fast text editor with printing
feature, an easy-to-use file-manager, a media player based on Xine, a
CD's and DVD's burner, and an archive manager supporting multiple
compression formats.
