Linux Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols at Computer World asks himself when he first started using Linux after attending the Linux Foundation Summit where several others were asked the same question. The Linux Foundation has posted a video of some of the answers; boy, do I feel young.

I'm still on Ubuntu right now, considering switching to another distro that's lighter on resources. Possibly Debian or Slackware, and I might give the new Zenwalk a try.

Different distros are not "lighter on resources" than others, window managers are. Try xfce / icewm / whatever instead of gnome/kde.

Now I'm dying to try the new version of Xfce, but am too nervous to make such a change to my system out of nowhere.

Then try the old version of xfce, available on your repo. It's trivial to test and trivial to switch back.

And I barely have the memory to run Ubuntu, let alone VirtualBox.

IceWM sounds like your cup of tea then.
