Idea:

XFCE is my desktop of choice, but was very disappointed to find Users & Groups missing from Mint 13 XFCE. It seems odd to have left it out, please reinstate.

Yes and in fact other things are lacking to make it multiusers ready (see my recent idea on this)

Hello, BBistheKing.
I definitely support your request. I only found out today that "Users and Groups" is missing from Linux Mint 13 xfce.
The decision not to include it is - to put it mildy - debatable, absolutely absurd to express it clearly.
Therefore a triple YES to your request.

Thanks Hammer, makes sense. I like to start with XFCE and add to it - like playing with lego. Like installing cairo dock to make it look like Mac for the kids to make it easy for them. And at the end of the day I still have a fast lightweight system.

I do not personally care for XFCE but I do want it to be in the repository as long as it is in good working order.
The reason for things missing may be that there are simply not enough people that have the energy to maintain XFCE. I do not know.
What I do know is that Fedora does not work well at all unless you stick with Gnome 3. That comes at the cost of Gnomes new phone interface for everything. One of the main reasons I left Red Hat after 13 years....

If there are people against including Users & Groups in XFCE, would you mind explaining why, please. There appears to be rather elitist attitude creeping into Mint since version 9. I'm tempted to go to Fedora or Xubuntu.
