I think the focus should be on making Xubuntu the lightweight
Ubuntu-like distro, as well as promoting Xfce. In other words, I feel
that Xfce is the perfect tool to unite all the low-calorie applications
Being user friendly should take a back seat to bringing Ubuntu to
platforms like old laptops, UMPCs, or making hardware with limited
resources like new again.
