I noticed that in Xubuntus (Xfce) windows manager settings there's an option to show a "stick" button in the title bar of application windows.

Out of curiosity I enabled it (moved from hidden to show). However I am not sure what it does and can't seem to figure it out.

A quick google search gave me no useful results.

What does it do exactly? How is it useful?
