foXdesktop is an attempt to create a new UNIX-based desktop environment using FOX, a multi-platform widget set written in C++.
Here are some key features of "foXcommander":
· User friendliness for beginners, power users and programmers
· Modularity: The opposite to "do everything in one place", but not necessarily sacrificing the idea of embeddable objects :-)
· Flexibility: All foXdesktop application are supposed to work together as a family
· Compatibility and standards conformity
As a result every foXdesktop application is supposed to both integrate seamlessly into an existing foXdesktop environment and still be useful standing alone and/or within another environment (GNOME, KDE, Enlightenment...).
Although FOX is a multi-platform library, foXdesktop is probably UNIX-specific. But, it is possible to not use the Windows Explorer interface on win32 platforms, thus it may be possible to create a new win32 desktop...
This project was origonally started by Josua Groeger, but he has lost interest in maintining it - as such I am the new maintainer (Mathew Robertson).
