"The third release of Xubuntu, the variant of Ubuntu with the
lightweight Xfce desktop, appeared last month. Feisty Fawn (version
7.04) uses the final gold code of Xfce 4.4.0 rather than the
release candidates in Edgy Eft (version 6.10) and Dapper Drake
(version 6.06). I had very positive experiences with both Edgy and
Dapper so I had very high expectations for Xubuntu Feisty Fawn. In
some ways the new release does take a step forward but in some
truly important areas it took a couple of steps backwards and has
been something of a disappointment.
"Once again my test bed for Xubuntu has been my four and a half
year old Toshiba Satellite 1805-S204 laptop which has a 1 GHz
Celeron processor and 512MB of RAM..."
