  • If you've ever installed another Ubuntu distribution, you will not be surprised by the screen that greets you after booting off of the install CD.

  • Similiarly, once you enter the install GUI, it's business as per the Ubuntu usual.

  • Photo gallery is awful

    Sorry guys but clicking on each picture and having the page reload is a real pain.
    Can't you embed a nice AJAX photo gallery in there?
  • @anonymous

    sadly it has been thta way forever and they have had multiple people complain about it, doesnt seem like they have any intention of changing it
  • xfce?

    I've tried out xubuntu and must say: ok, it is xfce, with a lot of gnome utilities. the login manager is kde (kdm) and the installer is also gnome...
    I just want to show, it isn't 100% xfce and that can be rather annoying...
    (ok, afaik this currently also isn't possible, but if I'm wrong please correct me)
  • XFCE 4.4.2

    I have just downloaded and run the latest Xubuntu 8.10 installer. Sorry to say that it comes with XFCE 4.4.2, NOT 4.6.

    In fact, you have to add the intrepid-backports repository to even get 4.6 (included in Jaunty or 9.04).
  • zenwalk?

    It doesn't compare to Zenwalk. If you really want to experience XFCE and the real power and simplicity of linux, give Zenwalk a try.
  • They upgrade later

    Later on in the images, you see them upgrade to Xfce 4.6.

    Maybe you should have looked at them all first.
