Hi everyone,
I was planning on installing a distro of SOME kind on the following system:

  • Intel 5000-series motherboard
  • 2 x Xeon Processors (Clovertown @ 2.33Ghz, 4-cores total)
  • 4Gb of DDR Ram (EEC)
  • 2 x 250Gb Hard drives (different types, not RAID suitable)



I am wondering what would be the least resource-intensive, but also offer me GUI. I am no linux pro, but know that Server 2003 didn't work out as well as I had hoped.

I have seen people suggest the server version + xubuntu-desktop. Some people suggested the server version + xcfe, and others said fluxbuntu.

Thoughts? Suggestions?
