Looks like I am going to spend a long time learning all there is to know about xfce.
The gnome team have completely screwed gnome with version 3.
I do hope that xfce is never going down the path of removing control away from the user like both KDE and Gnome have.
I knew xfce would be important to me one day, looks like that day has arrived.
I run Arch Linux and have done for a few years now.
