    XFCE's defaults are absolute dogwater, and if I'm going to spend my time customizing the desktop to make it usable then I might as well just use KDE and have a lot more options

            you can, the point is you can't select more than 1 item without using the keyboard
            dolphin and nemo (with a little caveat) are the only file managers that get it right

            and why can't i have it on the name column, like in every sane file manager? why resort to shitty and unintuitive workarounds like that? it's the little things like this that add up and make desktop linux a miserable experience

            if you didn't want something shitty you'd be using icon view instead of list, in the first place
            also it's not that unintuitive, anon. I never use list view, I recorded that webm just to show you it worked and I found that easily
            >it's the little things like this that add up and make desktop linux a miserable experience
            I think the opposite, it's pretty good to have some variety. thunar does it that way, another file manager will do it another way. you can just remove thunar and install nemo if you prefer it, without having to switch from xfce and without changing the rest of your experience

        The default panel placement is not really usable, It's just there to show of all possible features, in the case of default panel: docking feature

        you can backup and restore panels btw: panel profiles (it's not in debian stable, but I was able to compile it) saves a lot of work if you have to configure panels on 4 monitors

    I'm really enjoying Plasma 6, but I have to say that it is a little heavier on memory that I would like, plus there are a shitload of packages. So I'm very XFCE curious, especially now that I'm not going back to Gayland.

    Two questions for an XFCE chad:
    - How good are the keybindings? I don't need full tiling, but I control KDE with all keybindings (splits, super+1-9 for task bar) and its basically as fast as I ever was on i3.
    - I have to say I've enjoyed the look and feel of all the QT apps that I've used so far, is GTK actually that bad?
