Example: Sublime text will remember the window size and position onscreen the next time it is opened.
of course Compiz (with XFCE or any other DE) will let you specify window size and placement to a "T" (assuming you can figure out the proper method of doing the specifying as in window classes) but yeah, it's not all that easy to do, and it applies to any DE that you can use Compiz with, so not specifically an XFCE thing... but there it is

In fact, for the longest time,. all the standard Ubuntus (with Unity) used it as the main WM/DE... whether the user was aware of that or not.The best way to set up a Compiz-Reloaded desktop is to start with a fresh install of your preferred distro WITHOUT Compiz. DO NOT try to replace normal Compiz with Compiz-Reloaded, start with Reloaded and save a LOT of hassle.Follow Spatry's instructions or use one of the scripts and you should have no issues. I usually skip the scripts and just do the "yaourt xxxx" package by package cause that's not really that hard (you can even copy/paste right from the forums) but that's only going to work in Arch based systems. Still, doing it via the scripts or whatever the easiest way for your distro, make sure it's on a clean install, and not trying to replace a standard Compiz install, and it will save you heartache.
