Number two, Xfce wants to have its own unique "flavor". Nothing wrong with that. If Apple wanted to they would have used the Windows-style model, but they realised that they could improve on it. Lots of Apple fans and converts have agreed, and now they have a lot of mindshare. People who see a Dock, Expose-style effects, etc think "Apple". People who see a single taskbar at the bottom of the screen think "Windows". Xfce wants people to think "Xfce", not "Windows" or "Apple".
