Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu Linux has millions of fans. What's not to like? A free operating system with ten thousand free applications, websites covering everything you might ever want to know, tutorials, active forums, and more. Yet for all these benefits, situations pop up when you want a faster, lighter operating system. Perhaps you have an older computer, or maybe a netbook or a mobile device. Wouldn't it be great to have a lightweight Ubuntu? That day has finally arrived. Lubuntu offers a way to stay in the Ubuntu family -- with a product that performs better and uses fewer resources.

Yeah, you gotta love politics. ;)

I'm a lower-man on the totem pole, so all I do is make the suggestions to management, provide options, and handle the follow-through on what they decide. Yeah, it's not a perfect system, and rarely does the best solution get picked, but it's what we have to work with.

I'm just waiting for enough of them to die that it becomes feasible to replace them all. Or for the teacher to leave and the replacement to not want to use them. ;)
