Ok, now here's something I don't understand. You're saying that anyone
can customise it any way they want, but why even change the XFCE
defaults in the first place if the point is for the user to change it to
what they like? Currently it seems to me that the Xubuntu interface is
trying to look like the default Gnome interface, but is not quite there.
I say either go all the way (Applications, Places, System) or leave the
XFCE defaults in place!
