    I use Xubuntu (Precise) on my "old faithful" main desktop, and PCLinuxOS' Xfce spin on another desktop. I think I'm going to be forced to use Windows - virtually at least - in my next college class. I have been Windows-free for three years.

    I have used Xubuntu and Lubuntu in the past on some old computers that I no longer have. My current computers all run Ubuntu, and can run VMs of any OS/distro I want to try or need to use.
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    I could use Ubuntu 14.04 on my Asus laptop, I meet the system requirements comfortably and I've tried it but Xubuntu and the XFCE offers you the cake, the icing and all unlimited without getting fat! It's visually appealing yet lightweight.

    And cairo-dock works magic with it. I put a nice sidebar to the left, just like Ubuntu. That's pretty cool, it's Ubuntu and the power horse behind it in the Canonical-Buntu family, yet a lightwieght and stable OS without the bells and whistles that takes ressources away.

    I have Ubuntu Gnome on my laptop and HTPC but have Ubuntu/Win7 on my desktop (separate drives). When I get time I will switch Ubuntu with UG and one day ditch the Win7.

    I've got Ubuntu 14.04LTS as the only OS on my new netbook, which came with Linpus. It is also now the only OS on two systems that were originally XP, then dual boot. I wiped the XP partitions a month or two ago. My main system has 14.04LTS, but is still dual boot with Win7P (which is came with). I need something that can adjust the settings for my APC 550 UPS. I try to remember to boot in Win mode once a month just to run updates. I admit I am also afraid to let go of my final Win security blanket.

    I suppose I could run a Windows virtual machine if I knew how, but the current solution works fine.

    Yes and no.

    Xubuntu has become my OS of choice on my main machines, but my little eee-pc 701 is running Crunchbang although I am thinking it would be fun to install a minimal Ubuntu and set up my own openbox configuration for it. My other laptop is used to install a wide variety of operating systems purely for fun and to see what they are like. I'm currently thinking of putting one of the BSDs on it.

    Install the apcupsd package. It can manage your UPS and tell other machines on your network about the device's status. When the power goes off for an extended period of time, all your machines will shut down gracefully. You can specify the settings for the UPS in apcupsd.conf.

    Thanks, I've installed apcupsd and apcupsd-cgi and am reading the manpage and playing around with the various config options.
