Xubuntu Review: It Packs a Punch
Xubuntu 11.04 is a fast, stable operating system for older systems or systems that could use the performance boost. It is beautifully well put together and easy to use.
As you can see in the screenshot above, the layout consists of a pretty aquamarine background with a dock, application menu, task bar, and system tray. Just like in Ubuntu, Firefox is the default browser. I think the Xubuntu team should have taken it a bit further and installed a lightweight browser like Midori instead, but Firefox itself isn’t a bad choice. Just seems kind of odd for a lightweight distribution to carry it.
