Just as a curiousity; do you know what was the very first user request
on our brand new xubuntu user mailing list?


"I really like the speed of Xfce on this laptop (on any moachine,
actually), but I wish there were more icon options available for Xfce.
 Unlike gnome-look and, doesn't have a
plethora of icon options available."

This just confirms that users want an attractive look beyond
functionality. If you are unable to put yourself into the shoes of
users you might easily end up with a product like the Gimp, everyone
hates it except the ones who make it (and a few more amateurs)

By the way, I just use the menu button in my own set up, that's all.
