All right then. But why not suggested? So a n00b would
find them easier?

We should use rox for desktop too. 4.4 is >4 months
away it seems, and desktop icons are a must for
beginners. I know it fights over the desktop with
xfdesktop - but then, why not xffm4.3.1 - it's stable,
and it comes with desktop icons. Plus that it can
access SAMBA, and a *lot* of people use that.
