it is based on Gnome, most newbies around here that I tried converting 
to Linux had a hard time with Xfce (desktop icon behaviour, no easy smb 
browser, less friendly panel applets). This is getting better with 
latest Xubuntu but I realized GNOME is better suited for them and indeed
it proved more successful  - after they upgraded their RAM to 512M :)

thanks for the offer, I definitely need help with the graphics, we can 
talk in private about this.

As for the project: I indeed spent more time on this than Xubuntu lately 
seeing that if I want linux to spread locally (Romania) I need to focus
on some of the aspects that are not a priority or cannot be done for 
legal reasons in Ubuntu proper.
