Xfce "Xfce is just as customizable as KDE or GNOME, so I set myself a goal: make Xubuntu look like Windows Vista. Though you won't be told how to achieve the exact same end result, this guide provides comprehensive instructions helping you make Xubuntu look the way you want it to. In any case, I would certainly not recommend such a setup for someone new to Xubuntu. Xubuntu is different than Windows; making it look similar is only confusing."

If you want a full file manager as your open/save dialog than go ahead, there are Linux desktops that offer that possibility. Gnome states that an open/save dialog should be just that: a way to choose a file or a location to save a file. Period. Do one thing and do it well, sound familiar?

But what happened to the bit about doing it well?
It's got its hands tied behind its back by a bunch of loonies that think everyone is a fool!
