did not think much about cameras, but for image viewer we have gqview.
There's gtkcam
but I haven't used it. Of course gthumb will be installable from the repos
for those who
have cameras and need it. But the default xubuntu will emphasize small
footprint over
friendliness when there's a choice, since the latter is the primary focus of
gnome and kde.
The cost for lowend machines which will use xubuntu for basic tasks only,
which do not
really include cameras and playing video should be minimal. By basic tasks I
mean web,chat
and office things most frequently done in internet cafes, school classes,

Two Question ... will gimp be on the default install ? and ... is
> there a new xubuntu-desktop package somewhere ?

apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
or you mean something else?
