First, let me express my heartfelt thanks to the XFCE developers. Seriously, I've gotten so frustrated and fed up with all the problems with gnome3, unity, cinnamon, etc. I was almost ready to give up and go crawling back to Windows! Then I tried Mint 15 with XFCE. I feel like my computer has been reborn! I've been evangelizing the hell out of it! Switched my wife's laptop over, converted a friend's old desktop. They LOVE it as much as I do! You guys ROCK, and so does XFCE!
As an example of the kind of thing I want to do (in case it helps you to help me!), I'd like to have something on my desktop that tells me how many unread email messages I have with an abbreviated overview for each. I'd also like it to have "new message" button and a search field for finding a particular message.
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
Really? So is this simply not possible? Or are noobs encouraged not to contribute?
