Xfce "Every major release of the 4.x series of Xfce has been pretty major. 4.0 was the result of over a years work, a major rewrite of the entire desktop. 4.2 saw the introduction of major features and enhancements that were incomplete for 4.0, and new developers as Xfce4 gained popularity. 4.4 is going to be a major upgrade to Xfce, with new components, major upgrades to old ones, and more tools for developers. So, without further ado, let's take a look at what's coming."

Once completed, Thunar should provide all those things you expect from a modern file manager, including desktop icons, and not being a web browser.

Frankly I like my DE to act like one giant application. In fact I'd like _more_ integration like if I double-click ona document a complete version of koffice or whatever should open in the next tab.

For those of you that like everything seperated then enjoy while I still fail to see anything attractive about it. If its useable and lightweight XFCE may make a decent features/performance compromise on my older systems.
