I have said it before, but I would like to rewrite it the clearest I can.
I think that the most relevant place Xubuntu can take its on large
deployements. I think that we provide an stable desktop from release to
release, no surprises and increasing stability. I think that we should
focus on those aspects, in keeping our desktops clean, while adding default
improvements (better desktop search, HUD, better filesharing between
machines, just for example) that would be of interest of administrators to
While other desktops focus on gaining a larger public, integrating portable
and pseudo-desktop terminals (touchscreens monitors, tablets, netbooks and
notebooks), we should still focus on true desktop terminals, taking special
care on stability, security, conectivity and innovation.
I don't think we should stagger our growth by not embrazing new
technologies, instead we should look at them and try to determinate which
of the new technologies would gave Xubuntu a kickstart over other distros
based on xfce, or any other desktop. We should take the things we see are
excellent from the mainbuntu development, while taking care of stability
If we give administrators a distribution that they can trust on, that will
keep their users happy and would increase their productivity by not messing
their workflow, I think we could get a more extense users universe in our
