Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu reviews Xubuntu Dapper Drake Beta, and concludes: "If your system runs slowly using Gnome or KDE then try out Xfce. On the other hand if you think Gnome or KDE is bloated and you wish you could have a desktop that was like either Gnome or KDE. Then Xfce is for you. Xubuntu is a welcomed member of the Ubuntu family. I look forward to Xubuntu 6.06 final." Rejoice over the multitude of screenshots, boys and girls.

...about Xubuntu.

If you have such a slow system that you can't even run GNome or KDE then I think you should go for another distro that is specially made for very old hardware, maybe with an even older kernel.

Of course if your system is fast enough for gnome/kde and you still want to run Xfce then it's a welcomed member of the family, the more choiche the better but what's the big deal of adding it as a seperate package which you can simply install with apt-get on Ubuntu or Kubuntu like they do with blackbox which i'm using to run vmware in because of the low memory consumption.

One should make IceUbuntu or wmUbuntu, that would be the fastest Ubuntu ;)

If you are going that route you can't forget fvwmubuntu, or just fvunbuntu for short.
