I'm glad to hear someone is using it on a slow computer. My whole interest in Xubuntu is because I still use a PentiumII at home with gnome Ubuntu. To gain speed I downloaded the Xfce4 package manualy with Ubuntu package update in 5.04 and been tracking progess on the Xubuntu development. I would like now to know how 1/ To get Xubuntu? and 2/ How with Xfce4 on 5.04 I can activate it as default GUI and if downloaded the ISO CD install is necessary? Ie. If older deployed Ubuntu desktop can benefit from Xubuntu without having to re-install the whole OS (imagine a 50 copmputer LAN with older Ubuntu versions!!)

thanks for the hard work team
and keeep us posted.
