Xfce "This release incorporates major changes to the core of the Xfce desktop environment and hopefully succeeds in fulfilling a number of long time requests. Among the most notable updates is that we have ported the entire Xfce core (Thunar, xfdesktop and thunar-volman in particular) from ThunarVFS to GIO, bringing remote filesystems to the Xfce desktop. The panel has been rewritten from scratch and provides better launcher management and improved multi-head support. The list of new panel features is too long to mention in its entirety here. Thanks to the new menu library garcon (formerly known as libxfce4menu, but rewritten once again) we now support menu editing via a third-party menu editor such as Alacarte (we do not ship our own yet). Our core libraries have been streamlined a bit, a good examplle being the newly introduced libxfce4ui library which is meant to replace libxfcegui4."

I've been using xfce4 as my primary business and development desktop since xubuntu 9.04.
It has been solid, and I've got neither gnome nor kde to work on my thinkpad x61 as well as xfce.
Every new (k)ubuntu release I've tried them out again - I want new features! - but even though xfce has not added flashy features, I just can't be as productive anywhere else (I do use ubuntu gnome at home).

This is going to be so much fun! New features, and still a productive environment.
