Xfce "Every major release of the 4.x series of Xfce has been pretty major. 4.0 was the result of over a years work, a major rewrite of the entire desktop. 4.2 saw the introduction of major features and enhancements that were incomplete for 4.0, and new developers as Xfce4 gained popularity. 4.4 is going to be a major upgrade to Xfce, with new components, major upgrades to old ones, and more tools for developers. So, without further ado, let's take a look at what's coming."

(Gnome, for example, doesn't even have a clipboard)

He is right, Gnome does not have a clipboard. Try opening two applications in Gnome, copy from one, close that app, and then paste into the other one after closing the first one. It doesn't work, whereas in KDE it does.

As well thought-out as Gnome is, it absolutely blew my mind when I realized that there wasn't a clipboard. Fortunately, it was on the to-do list for 2.12, which I believe should be out any day now...

Gnome 2.12 will address that with a superiour way to that of any WM. Also gnome now has drag preview of text without the need to us copy at all.
