Well, this is probably a good technical explanation for GTK+ but in
Xfce the term "hidden windows" is used for what would technically be
"minimized windows". Right-click on the Xfwm4 title bar and use the
"hide window" action to see what I mean. The term "minimize" seems to
be the exception, only three occurences in Xfce 4.4, from what I see.
