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.

It seems that the ati driver is broken again in this version, I was able to use the radeon one by changing the text from ati to radeon in xorg.conf in 5.10 but this is pretty disappointing to put it mildly...

I think the Xorg version of this Xubuntu beta is a little older than the one in the Ubuntu beta. I have a version that's working the my Radeon + Dual Head setup, and I don't want to update it because I fear that it might break. On the other hand, I didn't even expect that they would fix the Xorg code in time for Dapper.

If you install Xubuntu on your harddisk, you can update the packages and see if the latest Xorg version works for you.
