Yes, I don't really like the MATE panel. Whenever I want to change/add applets or shift them around, each time I've found the whole process very fiddly. Items seem to move to places you don't want them at. Or if you lock one applet, you can't slide another item past it.

I actually like that they can be locked in place, sort of like KDE. For me there is not a huge difference between Xfce and MATE. Over the years Thunar has been a bit of a PITA compared to Caja which is quite mature. Xfce might be a bit easier to configure.
