Xubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal review - Struggling

A great fan of Xfce-flavored desktops, I am not. Xubuntu, specifically? Well, it has never really struck me as good as its brethren, the Gnome- and KDE-based desktops. However, once in a while, a refresh of bias and opinion is necessary. My last encounter with Xubuntu was back in 2009, almost two years back, a century-worth of time in the Linux frame of reference. So let's perform another Dedoimedo transformation.

In this review in particular, I'll see how good Xubuntu is in relation to itself, how well it scales against the latest Unity-flavored release, the rather spectacular Kubuntu edition, as well as many Ubuntu-based rivals, which use Gnome 2 or 3. It should be interesting.
