Xfce The Xfce development team is pleased to announce that the second and hopefully last release candidate of the upcoming Xfce 4.4 desktop is available for download now. The release focuses primarily on bug fixes and optimizations; see the release notes for a complete list of changes. The source tarballs and the graphical installer are available from the download page.

but there are a few important deficiencies:

1) Launcher creation and placement on the panel is awkward. Too many unnecessary clicks. My ideal is the Launchers List plugin (a.k.a Quicklounge) for Gnome panel which allows creating launchers by drag-n-drop from Gnome menu and also reordering them by left-click drag-n-drop.

2) Desktop functionality: can't right-click in any place of the desktop and create launcher or folder (gotta right-click on an icon which is counter-intiutive).

3) No means for adding alternate keyboard layouts. The keyboard layout plugin provided can only switch between what is already setup.
