Xfce The Xfce team has released the first bugfix release in the 4.6.x tree of the Gtk+ desktop environment, Xfce 4.6.1. "The first bugfix-release of xfce 4.6 has been released. Thanks to all the people who have been using xfce 4.6 and took the time and effort to submit bugreports for stuff that wasn't quite working the way it is supposed to. We have been able to fix several issues during the past few weeks."

I've always liked xfce. It has stayed out of my way and let me get one with my work. It doesn't cry out to be fiddled with or configured every session.

I'm sure you can configure other desktops to do this stuff but the default things make me happy:

* scroll wheel on background cycles through desktops.
* cntrl+Fn selects desktops.
* scroll wheel on title bar shutters up windows out of the way and down into view again. No need to go finding them in any taskbar or stack.

I'm sure there are many other productivity enhancing mechanisms .. but I use these all the time.
