@Yusuf: If you installed, Why you are forcing all people to install it
without solid reasons. I am not multimedia user but Developer and I am
getting from Xubuntu what I want apart from some screen tearing tweaks.
@Pasi: Please do not increase unnecessary dependencies. I installed and
*LOVE* Xubuntu because it's lightweight and most *STABLE* distro.
