Member since:

device icons management -> yes it does. For the rest, did you understand that they dropped the old file manager to a new one ?

They have implemented a terminal ? Because in the stable version I use, Terminal is just a redecoration of one terminal implementation on the system. -> I don't get your point, isn't that just great that they don't want to recreate everything from scratch ?

I'm sure to try Thunar when XFCE 4.4 is out, but from what I've seen during Gnome development, where they talked about Thunar, there is not much to see. -> Just name one reason to use Nautilus over Thunar

He's far from being a reference -> not a reference ? Even I, who don't really like his opinion and never liked Slackware, consider him as a reference in the GNU/Linux world.

You're trying to imply that GNOME is close to XFCE, and I really wonder why you're saying that. Coming from a KDE fan, I can trully say that XFCE is a great alternative. In fact, I tend to switch between XFCE and KDE all the time. It is a bit like "GNOME done right".
