- doesn't have a usual context menu on top of desktop icons
- doesn't choose more than one icon on desktop icons for (example) deleting 1+x desktop icons
- the feeling of desktop icon handling and position is a bit ugly
- can't right click on the desktop and create some new desktop icons (program starters, new directories, ...)
- trashcan?
- VFS? You can't bring a plugins to XFCE to browse into archives, usb devices, but forget everything else (ftp, ssh, sftp, nfs, smb, ncpfs, local iso and encrypted iso files/-dirs) and doesn't have an application for do something with usb scanners, digicams, ... I have integrated pmount, fuse AND ivman for doing a lot of this things above, but I haven't that experience to program ;)

sorry, it's not that handling what users expect. it looks like a hack ("we have it too") but it's not very useful (now).

That's allright, putting stuff on the desktop isn't very useful and a bad habit anyway ;)
