Xubuntu: Better than Ubuntu (at least for me)

| So my situation here at AEA has been pretty well stated in this blog, but to
| briefly reiterate where we are:
| There are approximately 200 workstations around campus for student use of
| which approximately 35 are Pentium 4 powered. The rest are either P3 or P2
| machines with around 256MB RAM.
| [...]
| Best of all I did a little accidental user testing with some 6th graders
| today and the results were great! Basically I had 3 classes today and in each
| one a kid jumped on the Xubuntu machine I set up yesterday. None of the three
| kids even mentioned the fact that their machine looked different from
| everyone elses, they all just hopped on firefox and got to work!
