Default panel configuration includes Terminal, but terminal is not
installed by default.
Other then that, seems to be working just fine.

Speaking of default screen-saver, AFAIR older XFCE used to have the
xscreensaver configuration icon in their control-panel and it's missing
in 4.4.
Any idea how to get it back?
