Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu DistroWatch reviews Geubuntu, and concludes: "For Enlightenment and Ubuntu fans this distro is custom made for you. It takes the best of Ubuntu and combines it with a great desktop environment. If Ubuntu or Kubuntu is a bit too heavy for your equipment, then Geubuntu just might be what you need. It might also be an idea for those who find Elive a bit overwhelming, or those who like to be a bit different from the rest of the crowd."

Why not just use Debian?

To me this whatever-buntu stuff is pure silliness. Why have a different distro for every gui in existence, or even different applications (edubuntu)?

I think there are already more Linux distros than Linux users. And the community just wants to crank out more distros. It has really become a joke.

With debian, you download the network edition, then put whatever gui you want on it. Or, don't use any gui at all. It's all the same to debian. To me, that makes much more sense.

But, whatever floats your boat.
