Studio Precise and Arch. On Arch I've got issues using Xfce + Gnome
apps, because background and font colors sometimes are (nearly) equal.
For Ubuntu Studio still everything is ok, I anyway think about switching
to LXDE.

There were problems early in the cycle yes. There are some colour problems
in 12.10 alpha too, but so far everything is readable. XFCE was our choice
because there is small manpower and xubuntu has done most of the work for
us. LXDE is doing well too, but not as mature.

For the person willing to spend some time, they could be something to try,
but not to switch a distro over to at this time.

Thank you for your input.
