It really did. This many glitches and bugs I would expect and live with
on rawhide, but not a stable release. It's also not something I could
expose my family to.
Thanks for all the fish, XFCE was a frienly and rock solid safe harbour
from the "modern UI" madness for several years but the decision to push
a development version to all users has made it unusable here.
Fortunately there are more alternatives these days.

I do adore Xfce as I can not stand "OS as Playground". The OS
should just get ot of my way and run my programs. I do not care
what the latest picture on the web are. And if I am in the mood
for something multimedia, I will fire up that program and exit
it when I am done with it. Xfce excels at this.
Since I am a computer tech, I just work around all the issues
with Fedora29 and Xfce 4.13. But when I am dealing with
customers, I still use Fedora 28 and Xfce 4.12.
I am a bit surprised at all the bugs in 4.13. I think it
is the buggiest release I have seen.
You can always check out Mate. It is also simple. But I
will stick with Xfce as I have configured a lot of stuff
in Panel 1.
