Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Like Ubuntu's Unity interface? Great. If not, you can easily change it to look and act like Ubuntu used to. This tutorial shows how.

Ubuntu flavors

I appreciate the depth of your dedication to the tweaks you detailed, but I do not understand why anybody would need to take a sledgehammer to Ubuntu when Xubuntu or Lubuntu may be more ideal for the intended use. In a senior center I could see that Lubuntu might be a better choice since it most resembles a flavor of Windows that might be familiar. I usually go that route when I convert an old Windows desktop for somebody so as not to completely alienate the user, and also minimize the amount of time I spend customizing desktops.
