Did you actually read the interview? He mentions GNOME alot, and if you
ever looked at the XFCE webpage you see that GNOME compatability is a
priority for them. This is not comperable to KDE which has a separate
development plattform.

Let me list some quotes from the interview, these are made by the XFCE

* I'm pretty sure that Nautilus will make it on the Linux desktop, so
Xfce and especially xfwm, had to be compatible with Nautilus to stay in
the run

* I think (but this is just my opinion) that Xfce could help some people
in migrating from CDE to GNOME

* Don't get me wrong here, I don't see it as something like "GNOME or
Xfce" because Xfce doesn't feature all the goodies one can find in
GNOME, but rather like GNOME and Xfce. Just a thought...
