    Hard to say as I am not sure what the Linux/Ubuntu Developers might be up to at the time being. A Christian XFCE would be very nice to have .

    It takes time to build a distribution and that varies; bugfixes can go in immediately. New features requiring changes in different areas can take a while.

    Re: Xfce plans

    Hello

    I've decided to try to bring you a little more help with this regard. I woke up this morning and had an "itch" to do this.

    To have an xfce version of Ubuntu CE:

    1. Install Xubuntu

    2. Ubuntu CE Includes the following packages:

    a. Xiphos. Available in the standard Ubuntu repositories.

    b. OpenLP. This is church presentation software. I had looked into this a while back and apparently it is for those who might find PowerPoint (or similar) problematic. Available in the standard Ubuntu repositories.

    Apparently it can be integrated with LibreOffice / Open Office Impress as well as VLC, and it contains Bible plugins. Wiki page.

    c. Quelea. Lyrics projection software. Download page. I couldn't find this in the repositories.

    d. DansGuardian. They call it web content filtering. It's a net nanny. Available in the standard Ubuntu repositories.

    There website says "The latest release contains Xiphos, OpenLP, Quelea, and much more."

    It's the much more that I haven't figured out yet.

    Because I have a lot of practice with PowerPoint, although I use Libre Office Impress today, I don't see how I would have a need for OpenLP or Quelea. But it looks as though OpenLP has an integration with Bible plugins that might make it more practical if you need that type of program.

    Hi
    This author will confirm D.O.M.'s observation about integration of OpenLP with LO and VLC.

    Re: the need for OpenLP:

    It does "automate" things a bit in terms of inserting hymn text and Biblical text, etc. as observed by D.O.M. .

    However, it also is not that amenable to tweaking the presentation as can be done with LO Impress. And also, it just has a.... hard to describe... "heavieness" about it.

    But, if one approaches things relatively simply and wants an "automated" approach that any, relatively untrained, person could use then yes OpenLP does a good job.

    If you need the web filtering capabilities then I believe the UCE web filtering is based off this article (someone correct me if I'm wrong),

    http://blog.bodhizazen.net/linux/web...ing-made-easy/

    and it uses the UFW option for redirection.
