yes, we do, and if this is the most asked question, this belongs near
the top of the list.

1. [for 4.6] copy '/etc/xdg/menus/xfce-applications.menu to
'~/.config/xdg/menus' and customize it.
2. [for 4.6] You can also
create desktop entries in '~/.local/share/applications' to override the
existing applications (change or hide) or add new ones.
3. [for 4.6] http://wiki.xfce.org/howto/customize-menu
4. For Xfce 4.8, 'sudo apt-get install alacarte --no-install-recommends'
in a terminal will let you use an editor to change the menus.

xfburn is not the default burner in all releases
