Xubuntu core developer Jani Monoses (‘janimo’ on IRC) gets the A-list celebrity treatment and joins Ubuntu’s Walk of Fame over at Behind Ubuntu (http://behindubuntu.org/interviews/JaniMonoses/).
Xubuntu is designed for lower-specification or older machines and can install on machines with only 64MB of RAM. It manages this amazing feat by switching out the traditional full-scale KDE and GNOME desktops and replacing them with a slim-line interface based on XFCE (http://www.xfce.org/). A huge number of packages have had to be tweaking to make Xubuntu possible and Jani’s time and effort to a tribute to what is possible.
What we’re all wondering is: What’s the name of Jani’s mouse in the photo and how did Jani pursuade the mouse to stay still long enough to pose for the Xubuntu logo (http://www.xubuntu.org/) photo-shoot?
