Been running this beast since beta1 and current SVN is very stable indeed! I enjoy the speed of xfwm4 and the user friendliness of thunar file manager with desktop and trash support. I guess the only thing its missing now is SMB network browsing through Thunar but its in the works I think.

I used to be a die hard gnome fan but ever since i switched to 4.4 SVN of xfce I find gnome annoying - especially its window list / task bar thing how it randomly changes button sizes when title bar changes.

xfce has do it right.

thumbs up!

I've been running Thunar beta2 for quite some time myself. It only depends on exo + libxfce4util, which is really sweet. So far it hasn't managed to break my habit of entering the console for most file operations, but neither did rox before it. Perhaps the full xfce interface will have more luck in this regard. I know I will slim it down to just xfwm + panel + thunar, and probably replace xfwm with openbox again eventually, so we'll see ;)
