Hi Simon,

In the first paragraph you note that xfdesktop has been confused with 
the whole xfce desktop environment. [perhaps understandably so] Those 
who are confused and read this blog post would benefit from a sentence 
explaining what one is in relation to the other.

Maybe something along these lines?

The Xfce Desktop Environment is a collection of components of which 
xfdesktop is one. Xfdesktop is the 'desktop manager'. It is responsible 
for setting a background image / color and drawing icons on the desktop. 
It can bring up an applications menu and a list of all running 
applications when you click on the desktop with the right or middle 
mouse button respectively.

mostly lent from: [ https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfdesktop/start ]
