Xfce "Today, after 1 year and 4 months of work, we are pleased to announce the release of the Xfce desktop 4.10, a new stable version that supersedes Xfce 4.8. In the 4.10 cycle we mainly focused on polishing the desktop and improving the user experience in various ways." A detailed overview of the changes compared to Xfce 4.8 and Xfce 4.10 preview releases can be found in the ChangeLogs. Xfce 4.10 will make its way to your distribution of choice, but of course, you can always download it and build it yourself.

1) Rename XFCE. Simple as that. If it's too difficult, grab an astronomy book and you'll come across some cool name. I AM SURE YOU CAN DO IT. IT'S NOT THAT DIFFICULT!

2) Please remove the Machintosh dockbar, as you end up losing 5% of your space using your screen.

3) Please, rearrange the MENU like the GNOME 2 was. Applications, Places & System. This is where good things should be copied.

4) Remove those spacers in the menus which are just horrible. If you want to split specific categories do what number 3 suggests.

5) Please find and stick with a BETTER and NICE looking font, and enable hinting by default set on slight and rba. It's what most screens need to look pretty. Come on, it's not that hard.

6) Write a better window border & titlebar, a good one like Adwaita and make it default. Drop all the crap that is in the bundle since they are unusable on 22" screens.

7) Fire the rat. He's done his job and it was just to scare people away. If companies like Red Hat can come up with clever logos, why "XFCE" can't? Laziness? You can do better than this.
