Joining the Xubuntu Teamd

Unfortunately I don't have any of my old PowerPC hardware as the logic
boards on them fried. I'm in the US and really don't know a secondary
language. The phone development, I hadn't thought of, and there's always a
millions apps I'm trying to see if fits my needs as a user.

I didn't really think of testdrive, that'd be a more viable solution. I'll
look into it. Personally, I love Virtualization but when I need real-world
benchmarks or testing for 3D apps that's usually why I reinstall. Kubuntu
had issues with graphics and CPU performance due to kwin, Ubuntu and Unity
always have taring unless I install the drivers from AMD (oddly they work,
only computer I've had them work on directly from AMD, the ones jockey
finds fail on my Samsung), MATE just isn't my classic Gnome 2.xx it still
has some work, and Xubuntu seems about the only thing that makes my system
feel like when Ubuntu 10.10 was released (best release in my opinion).

Thank you =)
