I have raged against Ubuntu's directional change, a comment made here, to me
when I questioned the possible use of xfce made me do some due diligence.
The comment was explore it before you condemn it. In the light of that
comment I explored xfce, mint and natty. I did not like the the vanilla xfce
but, it's customisable. Loved Mint I have that as my office OS now. upgraded
one of my laptops at home to Natty and persevered for a few days, you know
what, after getting round the changes I have to say its not bad. It's not
there yet but, it's not bad. 1 or 2 more releases should make a difference.
