    It's snappy, looks good, is stable and just works. It really should get a lot more attention, though.

    switched over from Ubuntu 10.04.4 to now Xubuntu 12.04 and loving it. the XFCE interface is snappy and doesn't have a terrible amount of background apps running. This is critical for 7 year old hardware like mine but to be honest, i will stick with Xubuntu even when I get new hardware this tax return time which is very soon.

    I also love it because XFCE is utilized by Mythbuntu which I also run as my home built DVR system

    When i first tried Xubuntu back in 2006 it was buggy,the panels would disappear etc.so i would always go back to Gnome.but that's all changed,I believe that Xubuntu is one of the best solid systems out there. it just keeps getting better, I do Appreciation Xubuntu.

    Me too! Using Xubuntu for 2 years now. What I like most is it's not Unity! Plus all my favourite Gnome apps are included as standard, it seems. It's quite nice, except for Xfburn, which is is buggy and under-loved, so far as I can tell. I have recently discovered the ncurses cd burner cdw, which I quite like though.

    Plus, gnumeric seems to be an excellent spreadsheet software!

    Simple, pretty, infinitely configurable, child-friendly, parent-friendly, well-chosen applications, easy on older hardware, makes me a happy little user!

    It doesn't get in your way, lean, stable, configurable, certain default ubuntu applications pre-installed, themes, etc ... and the icing on the cake for me is Thunar's custom actions. I feel very productive using it and it's running as the main host OS for my virtual machines.
    All in all pleasantly surprised and happy with 12.04.
