    Which is a big reason why I run Ubuntu and not the other "flavors." I always add at least one other DE or WM to Ubuntu. Some years back, I used to run Kubuntu, but then I just started adding KDE to Ubuntu. With Ubuntu 10.04, I added Openbox, and with 12.04, I added GNOME Shell. But I also keep the default (old GNOME in the past, Unity now).

    While I'm actually finding myself liking Unity, Xubuntu is by far my favorite flavor. The XFCE desktop feels like a virtual skinning sandbox, I can make my desktop look almost however I want it to! =P Might give the KDE desktop another try pretty soon as well.

    If my computer wasn't such an old beast I'd love to try Ubuntu and see what all the Unity fuss is about.

    But she runs Xubuntu 12.04 with no trouble. It's infinitely customizable, elegant, pretty, and a model of simplicity.

    I'm currently using Xubuntu Precise. Might make a switch to Ubuntu or to Debian when Wheezy goes stable. Will see in the future.


    I really love the simple, but really pretty look of Xubuntu. The guys from the Shimmer project really did a terrific job.

    Re: Which Ubuntu flavour do you prefer?

    Use Lubuntu on old hardware and weak machines like netbooks. I have been trying Kubuntu and find it very polished, but the flow is just not nearly as smooth as Unity or gnome shell (once I get used to the new DEs the menus seems so inefficient and also I like the keyboard shortcuts) and I use a lot gnome applications. So on my main machines I prefer Ubuntu with Unity, but I am keeping a Kubuntu partition to play with.

    Re: Which Ubuntu flavour do you prefer?

    Depends what my purpose is.

    My favorite to install for friends switching from Windows is LinuxMint w/Cinnamon.
    My favorite for installing on computers of people that have never touched a computer before, Ubuntu 12.04 default with Unity

    for me... I bounce a bit. Between Ubuntu w/Unity, Lubuntu, or Ubuntu w/OpenBox

    I have ADHD so when a new version of something comes out I'm all like "ooh shiny" and try it for a bit and if I like it, it is my "favorite" for a little bit.
