However, FOSS advocates familiar with Brazil describe a less hopeful situation.

Xfce is another Open Source Desktop Manager like KDE or GNOME, that has traditionally been known for being lightweight and able to run more efficiently on slower hardware. Through the years Xfce has gradually added more features, but still has kept the bloat down to a minimum. With the long awaited release of version 4.4, Xfce is now competitive with the big boys.

For more than 20 years, Unix played the role of the 800 pound gorilla in the server space, especially in enterprise, scientific, government and academic environments. But traditional Unix vendors have faced increasing competition on two fronts. Microsoft Windows Server products have made significant inroads, particularly in the business back-end.
