Yes, I agree Warren. I ran the beta1 and beta2 for a while when I used
Linux, and it was _much_ better than 4.2.

Things to note as well:
- -xfce4-iconbox no longer exists in 4.4; functionality was integrated
into the taskbar, which is much better in this version.
- -xfce4-systray no longer exists as well in 4.4; this was integrated into
the taskbar as well I believe..
