what's a good example of a major additional feature that gnome has which xfce doesn't? i think i may be switching from gnome to xfce soon.

I know that it is not perfect but gnome has VFS. Another thing that I would like to see is a launcher/searcher applet like deskbar in XFCE, or maybe just a popup launcher like Quicksilver in OS X. I use deskbar mainly to launch apps in Gnome.

In Xfce4.4 there is xfapplet, which allows adding gnome panel applets to the xfce panel. Thanks to it you can easily add the deskbar-applet.

Haven't used Quicksilver, but fyi xfce has a built in app launcher called 'xfrun4'. It's a popup, remembers your old entries, etc.
