    Re: im a new and lost... help?

    both you can change ubuntu to Lubuntu or even smaller Xubuntu but since a full install is easy that may be better for a new user
    also you might check distro watch there are several prebuilt server distro that are really easy. NAS for free or SMS or zentyal
    or test them all. Do the disto hop and try several till you find the one that suits you!!

    Here, http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/whichbuntu you have a comprenhensive guide about the characteristics of any buntu flavour.

    Also, you can get different desktops running some commands addressed in this guide too:

    i.e., pure lubuntu: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purelubuntu
    i.e., pure xubuntu: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purexubuntu

    Changed the thread title to a more informative one.

    Lubuntu is significantly lighter than Xubuntu and the best chioce for an HP Mini.

    Yes, delete and start over.
    If you install Buntu 17.10 remember to download a new ISO file.

    Old files might contain a bug which can damage UEFI hardware. Updating an existing installation and upgrading to 17.10 (if one has faith in upgrades in general) are safe.

    Friends. I would love to delete and star over. I have downloaded Ubuntu desktop iso lubuntu same... Did the dd command... I just keep coming back to a black screen command line that alllows me to log in. I tried to change the file names on my USB but my Mac won't mount the iso. What's next? (and no fb is no the answer)
