   * Organization features: as many of the target audience are on older machines that can not handle Compiz/​Beryl,​ it would be neat to have some other window-organization features available. Namely tabbed navigation, and/or possibly a column view similar to that of a Mac Finder.   * Organization features: as many of the target audience are on older machines that can not handle Compiz/​Beryl,​ it would be neat to have some other window-organization features available.

         * Ah, yes, I didn't know about that previously. But it's not really what I'm looking for... seems that expands the window to fill the screen, without the borders & decorations. What I miss from E16 is that Ctrl+Enter enlarges the window (so the dimensions are still the same -- my terminal emulator is still 80x25, but appears larger.) That's handy for a small screen like mine.         * Ah, yes, I didn't know about that previously.

 +  * Ditch xfwm4 in favor of mutter. xfwm4 has tearing (even with composition enabled) and compton is unmaintained and currently has problems with gtk 3 CSDs and shadows in QT applications. Xfwm also doesn'​t allow decent resizing on modern displays because of the 1 px border. It also seems very unlikely that the xfce team will ever make xf4wm compatible with wayland. Performance wise they are almost the same. This would need changes in xfwm4-settings and a fix for the workspace transition.
  
 +  * Add an option so Desktop Margins could be ignored when tiling windows (both by mouse and keyboard). When you tile windows, normally, you want to use all available space. This is very good for ultra wide screens where you want floating windows in the middle section of the screen but tiled windows to use all the space.
