I've been all over the Linux landscape and, I have to say, I keep coming
back to Xubuntu. Originally, I chose it because I was running an older
laptop that didn't have much power. Xubuntu ran smoothly when its
heavier cousins didn't. Now, I have much better hardware but, I figure,
why put the heavier desktops on them just for the glitz? Xubuntu lets me
do everything I want to do simply and with all the power I need. Plus, I
know I'm squeezing every single bit of power out of my machine.

I have no reason to go to anything but Xubuntu. I develop software,
chat, watch movies, compose music, edit videos, everything and I've
never run into a problem. Why would I ever go anywhere else? :-)
