works great so far got it on a throw away box with no hard drive , got 4 gigs ram, intel video , installed to a 500 gig seagate expansion drive. recognized network chip, and installed and updated flawlessly, almost too good to be true. only problem so far was plume writer. i installed synaptic pkg mgr.. and uninstalled plume writer love the distro..
Seriously, this is the worst Linux distro I have ever seen. Apart from weird optics it comes with three surprises: a crashing installation routine on my first attempt. Then a completely messed up whisker menu which randomly generates new "unused menus" every time you try to edit it. And a pre-installed JACK that is never operational, not even on an entirely fresh install. Why developers decided to set up a distribution that forces the two sworn enemies JACK and PulseAudio are into marriage, is beyond my understanding. What is this thing aimed at? Multimedia creation? Yeah, like hell. Actually I consider going MS again. Or just forget about it altogether.
Cant install pulse audio equalizer wireless internet network not working cant install ubuntu software center
guayadeque audio player a lot of software will be missing with out software center you are number one so dont forget the people that love UBUNTU.
very snappy on my dual core laptop,compared to ubuntu.I was hoping for something I havent seen before in photo editing,but maybe I need to play with it more.I like the idea of focusing on performance rather than eye candy.
Both have the same updated files. Both are XFCE. If you want more European fonts, but without the detailed AUDIO, VIDEO & GRAPHICS applications, then ordinary Xubuntu is ok.
No other ready-made Linux distro has this "STUDIO" setup at the moment. It is not perfect. Very detailed customizations, with complex script languages has yet to be done. Usually the fashion-followers who love tiny-pale scratchings on a deep-black background will find it to be not good enough. Most GTK & QT drivers are set for Dark-foreground, Pale-background, which is not fashionable, atm
After installation, the operating system will upgrade drivers, etc - as is usual with EVERY Ubuntu-based operating system. Like most Linux operating systems however, Canonical & the official Ubuntu-community remain ignorant of the power & flexibility of Grub-customizer, for multi-booting into any installed Linux kernel, and-or multi-booting into any of several operating systems.
comes with the best pre-installed selection of creativity apps and
wisely uses xfce.
I've used it without any problems since at least 12.04 (actually before that, when it used GNOME, pre-Unity, so maybe 11.04) and it has also upgraded without incident.
