Some facts please.

What is less lightweight?  Compared to what?

Time to login screen?
Time from login to ready desktop?
System memory usage (total - (free+cache+buffered)) at that stage?
Time to launch browser from ready desktop?
System memory usage at that stage?
Response time of e.g. menus?  Dialog opening?
When using the UI over network (remove X)?
Battery usage (if using laptop)?

Differs by how much?

On what kind of machine (memory, CPU, disk speed, swap size/use)?

(I think the main issue could be the bloat in the Ubuntu base system
Xubuntu gets from Ubuntu directly, not the desktop or apps as such.)
