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."

UTOPIA?

Xfce 4.0.x was my default DE for more than one year, then I used the betas of xfce 4.2 but switched to gnome 2.10 less than two months after the final 4.2 release.
I think I'll try xfce 4.4: they're going to add a better light-weight file manager, and if they'll add a bit of UTOPIA (hal, dbus, CD/USB-stick auto-mounting, etc. etc.) maybe I'll become an happy Xfce user again.

You could always just run gnome-volume-manager on Xfce, it has little in the way of GNOME dependencies (in fact, in Mandriva, we use it on KDE, because it does the job and KDE doesn't have such an app yet). Or ivman, for that matter.
