    I like Ubuntu Mate, but I'm currently running Kubuntu 18.04.

    ~350MB at boot, idle.

    It's pretty full featured too.

    Why? libgtk-2.0 is still available in Ubuntu.
    Aqualung git works fine in 18.04.x, may in 19.10 though I've no reason to ck.

    Re: Saying goodbye to Canonical

    I ran a lot of lightweight stuff on old hardware along the way, but with all the power of new hardware (more and faster memory and CPU's and SSD's) There is very little I do that requires more speed, except rendering videos when exporting from Openshot. I joined the forum in 2005 and believe it was just prior to that time that I started using Linux. Tried many, many distros but I always came back to Ubuntu. Out of all the desktops, I've tried I like Gnome 3 the best. And believe me, I think I tried them all.
