It's good to see this still being developed and receiving positive reviews.

"I haven't seen or used any other XFCE distro which offers so much."

Dedoimedo pretty much wrote this off a year ago. Since then though Solus has kicked the bucket and admittedly of the two my money would also have been on Voyager to go.

Second screenshot with selection of Conky themes.

IMO this distro has always set the standard for what can be offered with Xfce as a default package and you have to be impressed with how quickly they got their 14.04 based release out. Hopefully they will not have sacrificed stability for a quick release date. It will also be interesting to see how this behaves on my NVIDIA desktop since Xubuntu 14.04 crashes during a live session.

Best to follow the Voyager links from the Distrowatch announcement.
Their main page is in French but Google translate will sort that.

A couple of tweaked desktops here and here.

Just installed it today and as an avid Distro Hopper - I can say this is a superb Distro - Everything that I needed worked out of the box after installing the programs - Highly Recommended 14.04 LTS

I'm glad you like it.

This one also has a ton of stuff pre-installed including Compiz/Emerald, so options for a personalized look are huge. It's based on the previous LTS, 12.04.

Just released is a new LTS (long term support) release 14.04.4 "X". This is classified as partly experimental as it uses Xfce 4.12 which has yet to be fully certified (bit like me then ) The release announcement is in French but there is a language selector on the page.

When you look at the likes of this, Chalet OS and Peach OS for example you can see just how far developers have improved and extended the Xfce desktop environment from the days when it was only a minor competitor to Gnome and KDE.
