It sounds like Ubuntu 14.04 and its spins are humming right along. I’m particularly interested in checking out Xubuntu and Lubuntu since I lean toward the more minimalistic desktops. But KDE and Ubuntu GNOME are also worth a download if those desktop environments appeal to you. It’s great to see the Whisker Menu added to Xubuntu, it almost reminds me of Linux Mint’s menu. The new wallpapers should spruce things up a bit as well. It’s very cool that the Xubuntu folks decided to include the winners from the wallpaper contest.
