Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When I click, hold and drag it, the button (I think it's the right term...) moves with the cursor like a picture when you drag it from browser. But whenever and wherever I release it, the picture goes back to it's button and there's no way I can change their order like this...
Kde 4.3.5, I have an option in "settings" menu of the "task manager" by which I can "sort" and "group" those "minimized windows", see if you have something similar.
AFAIK there is nothing under the Xfce settings for the Task List but if you right click in an empty area of the Task List and click on Properties ... on my system the only box ticked is "Fixed length (pixels)"; the setting is 640.
This feature was available in Xfce 4.6 but was removed in 4.8.
There is a bug report, to which the developers replied and said that they removed the feature because it makes things less complicated for them and they thought that users don't care much for it.
Maybe the best thing to do now is to add our voices to other peoples' voices and comment on the bug report so that the developers would realize that user do actually care for this, and maybe make this feature available again in later versions of Xfce.
