[ Thanks to Jay for this link.
"Xubuntu 6.06 is a derivative from the popular Ubuntu Linux
distro that uses the Xfce Window Manager instead of Gnome or KDE.
Xfce is a light weight Open Source window manager that is fast and
efficient which makes Xubuntu ideal for lower end computers. Or if
you want a super fast system try Xubuntu on a newer system like a
my Gateway MX6440 Laptop (1.8Ghz Turion64 with a gig of RAM) and
you'll be amazed at how fast Linux can run.
"Over the past few months I have been immersing my self back
into the Linux world after a few years on hiatis. One thing that
has struck me the most is the abundance of LiveCDs like Ubuntu,
SLAX and Knoppix just to name a few. I have gone from Fedora 4 then
to 5 and then to OpenSuSE 10 only to find that these 'major'
distros are no better or any more stable than the 'minor' distros
and LiveCD's. For awhile I had settled on Kanotix but that all
ended when I got a laptop upgrade and Knotix no longer worked
properly. This restarted my hunt for a distro again..."
