I'm sure the wording and content isn't totally finalised, but I have one
major gripe:

"Thunar has been designed from the ground up as a fast and easy-to-use
alternative to xffm."

This isn't a competition.  There's no reason to mention xffm at all.
Xffm has its own strengths and weaknesses, as does/will Thunar.  With
this in mind, you could replace "xffm" in the above text with
"nautilus", "konqueror", etc. and it would still be a valid statement.
I'd suggest removing the reference entirely.  Just: "Thunar has been
designed from the ground up to be fast and easy to use."
