Yea read that, after scrolling down (didn't expect any jokes this
morning after reading my mail last night, I admit). But I do know
people want such renaming, same as gdesktopmenu, which i still find a
bit sad. Crossdesktop is how stuff is written, not the name. Sounds a
bit like we're not proud of Xfce anymore. Personally i think if we
show the Xfce libraries/applications are crossdesktop and they are
used by more people, it will result in Xfce being more popular and
that's why we write software, make Xfce better but help open-source
(more global) too.
