15.04 is not a new release. It's not even yet a release. In fact, at the
time of your email it was still *Alpha* software. Sure, there's bugs. In
fact, for day-to-day use in any kind of environment that would be deemed
*important*, LTS versions of all Ubuntu flavors, including XFCE,
are recommended. Currently that would be 14.04, which has a 5-year support
status. Honestly the only conclusion one could reach here is that the OP
likes XFCE better than KDE (which is fine), and chose to pin the reason for
the switch on what the OP calls buggy software. Without even an example of
what he meant or any attempted solutions to fix it, except to write about
it here in very general, and non-helpful to readers of this mailing list,
terms. The fact that this thread even has this many answers to it is a bit
