I'm still wondering which distro to use. So far I've tried Linux Mint 17 and I liked that, but now I'm onto Xubuntu.

In Mint (with Cinnamon) there was a really nifty (and popular) panel item called:

Window List with App Grouping

Window List with App Grouping

It sort of resembles the MS Windows 7 taskbar ( as I left that for Linux :) ), which makes my taskbar less cluttering when I have ±1000 things opened.

The main things I like about it:

  • Grouping windows
  • Middle-mouse-button opens new window/instance of program
  • Mouse-over shows windows

Is there anything for Xfce that does the same?

I know this is old, but check out DockBarX, which is available for Xfce. Here's some more details: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/03/dockbarx-available-as-xfce-panel-plugin.html
