Re: From Ubuntu 10.04 to Xubuntu 12.04.1
Basically, had the same experience with all our PC's. Xubuntu installed and configured with little to no effort. I agree that the experience is very similar to 10.04 with the exception of the Settings Manager, which makes configuration even simpler.
The experience of the desktop environment is pretty much identical to the one I had with ubuntu 10.04.
As for the DVD recognition, might I suggest you start a thread in the help sections, since this section of the forums isn't for support. I hope no other member tries to help here, as it may result in early thread closure based on this sticky.
Thanks for sharing your feedback and hope you continue enjoying Xubuntu. Good Luck
