is there any desktop environment, windows manager or fork of ubuntu 12.04 that permits moving the apps in the taskbar (traditional taskbar, not unity left panel)???? You know, for example in Firefox I can change the position of the tabs. I would like to do the same for the apps in the taskbar.

I tried xfce, but it doesnt work..

Cinnamon allows it, and has a "traditional taskbar" like you seem to want.

Right click over the panel > Panel > Panel preferences > choose the panel > Items tab > Window buttons > click on settings button on the right > Sorting order: None, allow drag and drop.
