    Ubuntu Flavors

    I'm pretty new here and I was checking out the various flavors of Ubuntu. What is the difference between them? Is it simply the desktop environment? Or are there other significant differences?

    The diffs between Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu are basically the desktop environment (and its applications). Xubuntu have less hardware requirements.

    Some other flavors are aimed at different users needs. The Netbook Remix is best suited for... hmm... netbooks. Edubuntu got some educational software for kids. The Christian Edition and Muslim Edition got some religion related software, like a bible/quran reader I think.

    Flavours as in release dates or derivative distributions.

    That's kind of what I was gathering without going into the dozen and one different distros. But I figured I'd ask.
