Xfld is 'Xfce live demo', a GNU/Linux operating system.
Version: 0.3Xfld is 'Xfce live demo', a GNU/Linux operating system (derived from Knoppix) that can be run completely from CD.
Operating System: Linux
Xfld provides an alternative OS for common i386-machines which are able to boot from CD-ROM. No software installation is required: The only requirement is to enable the computer to boot from CD in BIOS or boot-sequence. As soon as the computer is booted and the OS is loaded automagically, it is prepared and runs Gnu/Linux.
Xfld provides approximately two gigabytes of (transparently compressed) software. Among those you can find tools like the Gimp, OpenOffice, which is partly compatible to Microsoft Office, Firefox for browsing the web, Thunderbird for reading your mail - and many more.
Xfld features Xfce as its default desktop environment and therefore enables the user to test-drive this extensive and fancy desktop enviroment at will.
Xfld provides an OS not only for testing purposes, but also for productive work. You can easily carry your working environment with you by just carrying along the Xfld-CD (as OS and working-environment) and an USB-stick (for personal data).
Xfce is a desktop environment for Linux and various Unix derivates. The developement team put their stress on three subjects, which is what makes Xfce very appealing:

- Xfce looks good
