    Xubuntu. Simple yet customizable. Easy on resources.

    Agreed, but only because it is the best of all worlds, and because LXQt is a bit of a disappointment, and I'm not sure LXDE has any other future (otherwise, I might change my opinion on which is best.)

    For me, Ubuntu Studio is mostly Xubuntu, but with extra suport for the low-latency kernel, and all you need for audio-visual tools and programs.

    I like xubuntu as well. However lately I've been driving vanilla gnome a bit. I enjoy it. I find it fresh. Different workflow for sure. I am tired of the same old taskbar start button paradigm.

    The latest Xubuntu LTS is what I use on my oldest or lowest specification laptop(s). It just works.

    Since Ubuntu 17.04 I too have installed the vanilla-gnome-desktop meta-package after installing Ubuntu which gives me what Ubuntu GNOME would look like if it still existed as a separate flavour. It also allows me to better compare Ubuntu with Fedora which I also now use.
    The Bug Squad needs your help.

    >>>Any flavour of Ubuntu is available for the price of a simple download. Burn some LiveUSBs. Try them all out.<<<

    technically burn is the incorrect term, you burn a cd / dvd. The laser actually burns the data on a disc's layer.

    you create a bootable USB drive.

    I run Kubuntu. I have no opinion about what is the "best" flavour. Of the 'Buntus, I've only spent time with Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Xubuntu. Kubuntu was one of the first Linux distros I tried -- first installed it here back in 2006 -- and as things have turned out, it's had the longest run of any distro I've used here. Maybe because I've always liked KDE.
