I agree.
Rox is fine and very responsive (I use ite since the beginning of 2004 on
XFCE), but it doesn't use the standard /Desktop directory, and it's
configuration is not difficult but a bit tricky.
If xffm does support to desktop icons and respects the Freedesktop
standards, I think that it must be the choice of preference.
