Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

Right click does not work in far too many places, I really miss right click and drag and select move like in windows, and I believe in some versions of gnome 2. XFCE is great, but it's all these little details that make it not good enough for daily use.

You're talking about Thunar, XFCE's default file manager.

I find that a bit basic myself, but it's easy to install an alternative and set it as the default. If you like Gnome's file manager then you can run that in XFCE without any problems.
