    just got done installing xubuntu at church

    my youth group has two computers at our church. both of them run windows. well today one of them got a boatload of viruses and i decided that i would install xubuntu on it. after 45 min of trying to boot the cd i thought i'd put some more ram in it. it only had 128mb and i wasnt about to spend the whole day installing and configuring openbox. so i finally got the ram install (now it has 3xx something mb) and its running xubuntu 8.10 smoothly so now hopefully the kids in the youth group will catch on and ask me to install it in their computers too

    Good work. I wouldn't run Xubuntu on a machine with that little RAM though. SliTaz, Debian, or an Ubuntu minimal install would be better.

    Personally, I would install either Ubuntu Minimal or Arch Linux and then build from there. Yes, it would take a while, but the end result would be harder, better, faster, and stronger.

    LXDE looks pretty much like Windows by default, and it needed zero configuration by me for it to work.

    Did anyone else get the mental image of someone sitting in a pew, installing Xubuntu while the preacher was delivering his sermon?
