Hi guys, I'm a new user of Ubuntu (I was a Puppy Linux user for a while,
and Red Hat a long time ago), and have been impressed with it.

Anyway, just to let people know that the new issue of Linux Format has
Xubuntu 7.10 on the DVD, if you:

1) Prefer the XFCE window manager and
2) Don't want to download the ISO from the Xubuntu site
