"Currently, Ubuntu recognizes six official variants. Three --
Edubuntu, Mythbuntu, and Ubuntu Studio -- are defined by their
purposes. Specifically, Edubuntu is focused on education, Ubuntu
Studio on multimedia, and Mythbuntu on MythTV.
"Three other official variants are distinguished primarily by
their choice of desktop: Lubuntu uses LXDE, Kubuntu KDE, and
Xubuntu Xfce. It's within the three desktop-defined variants that
general users can look for alternatives to the main Ubuntu
interface of Unity on top of GNOME."
