Try using the menu-bar applet as it is what Ubuntu uses.
Right click on an application: there is no more "Add to Panel" or "Add to Desktop". Is there a way to have them back (other than "create launcher")?

You can left click and drag the shortcut to the panel.

When I first tried Xfce it was like seeing the light, it is faster then Gnome, and has better plugins for the panel,you can even run Gnome panel applets if you want to, so in that you can run both the minMenu AND have the "places" plugin(xfce and/or Gnome) going at the same time.
