I'm running XFCE3.8 on an OpenBSD and XFCE4 on Debian side by side.
I tend to miss some features of XFCE4 on the other machine, but I also 
miss some the other way round.
Personally, please, XFCE4 seems to go a tick into GNOME / KDE direction 
and away from CDE (which - I concede - is hated by almost everyone. Not 
by myself, though).

Iconbox is another somewhat clunky piece. Where would I place it for 
accessibility ? Now I use 'shade' as taskbar command. But now 
everythings shades above each other instead of nice iconised apps side 
by side.

2 sen for minimised icons !
