Xfce The Xfce development team is pleased to announce that the first release candiate of Xfce 4.4 is now available for download. A lot of bugs were fixed during the last two months and several new features were added. For example the brand new Xarchiver 0.4.0 is included, trash support was added to Thunar and xfdesktop, and the overall memory usage was reduced. See the ChangeLog for a complete list.

I like to use the search GUI that comes with XFCE4. In a shell type xfglob4. Keep in mind you could also use Beagle on XFCE4 if you installed it. On Fedora you just type "yum install beagle". I rarely use it since I have most of my files categorized into directories.

I think it is kind of funny reading some of these comments. XFCE4 doesn't have this and that feature... If you are using linux you can combine desktop features. This is not Windows. So, if you want to use gnome's panel then open a shell and type "gnome-panel". Kill the XFCE4 panel. Run Konqueror if you must have a file manager with Tabs. I tend not to use the Gnome or KDE applications since they consume a lot of memory. That is the beauty with Linux - mix and match until your OS fits your hand like a glove. You just need to know how to use the shell and be familiar with the linux applications available.
