The team is proud to announce the release of Snowlinux 3 "Crystal" XFCE.
Snowlinux 3 XFCE
Due drastic changes with Gnome 3 and Unity, XFCE is growing more and more up. XFCE is quite similar to the most popular Desktop environment Gnome 2 and offers an alternative for all former Gnome 2 users. This is one of the reason why Snowlinux XFCE got so much new features and improvements. It should not lack some features and functions which are available in the main edition. We are trying to let XFCE act like Gnome 2 and to offer an alternative for all former Gnome 2 users.
