Ubuntu 6290 Published by

Dedoimedo postedn a long, enthusiastic review of Xubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr 64-bit Long Term Support (LTS) edition, covering live session, installation in a dual-boot configuration with Windows 7 on a laptop with SSD, and post-install use and fun, including Wireless, Samba sharing, multimedia playback - Flash, MP3, applications, resources usage, battery life, boot time, printing over network, customization and tweaking, stability, suspend & resume, associated hardware problems, and more.

Time to give Ubuntu's under appreciated brother - or sister - its deserved attention. Going from sucky to awesome in the manner of just a few years, Xubuntu has effectively filled the gap left by the end of Gnome 2, and it's now the new lithe darling of the desktop world. With such high stakes, we test.

As far as hardware goes, I am going to do something rather bold today. Remember my T400 laptop, the one that no distro could really use well, because the Wireless network was dreadful and all? Well, I will attempt to use this one for the current setup. After me.
