    You have some bragging rights there. What parts of kde do you have installed?

    Goodo! One last little question (well, for now, prolly more to come at a later date ^^ ). Is there a Xubuntu forum, or XFCE forum on the ubuntu forums (like Kubuntus)?

    No, but the XFCE forum is pretty good. Their level of talk is a bit higher than "beginner" though, so watch for that....

    http://forum.xfce.org/

    EDIT: When are you planning to do the install?

    Thanks Art. I guess some time this week, or at the weekend. Ill have a bit of a read first. The plain ubuntu download is tiny, already got it on a cd ready to go.

    In order to keep your system light, install these:
    Browser: Kazehakase
    Mail: Claws
    IM: Pidgin
    Video: VLC + MPlayer
    Audio: Alsaplayer, Audacious, Consonance or Exaile
    Disc Burning: Graveman
    Mixer: xfce4-mixer
    Login manager: SLiM
    PDF: ePDFview
    Editor: Geany
    Office: AbiWord and Gnumeric-GTK
    Torrent: Deluge
    Feed reader: Liferea
    Chat: XChat
    iPod: Gpodder
    Picture Viewer: Mirage
    Graphics Editor: GIMP and Inkscape
    Archiver: Xarchiver

    Oh, and install EmelFM2 and add the Medibuntu repository ( http://medibuntu.org/ ) to install libdvdcss2 and w32codecs.

    Even though you have 4GB of RAM, using a GNOME-free desktoop will make your computer fly.

    If you install Ubuntu then Xfce, you will have gnome apps installed.

    Tel, im not to worried about it being that super light I have 4gb of ram, i just want to get rid of the pauses on Xubuntu, and i like having nice fresh minimal self chosen installs

    L815, im thinking they are meaning the very base Ubuntu install. As in the one that doesnt even install a desktop let alone any apps.
