I think for now rox would be a good choice but once Xfce-4.4 is
released we may want to reconsider things. I know Edscott (the xffm
developer) has been working very hard at improving xffm and splitting
the various incarnations of xffm into individual applications. The
alternative filemanager, Thunar, is looking very nice as well.

Well, the logo looks a bit clunky and it's missing the progress bar but
besides that, the boot messages are much more readable than with the
'stock' Ubuntu Usplash or the Edubuntu Usplash. That alone is a vast
improvment! Overall though it looks good.
