Starting Up With Xubuntu
XFCE + Ubuntu core = Xubuntu.
Every computer has different hardware specifications and that’s a very good reason to check out below if your hardware meets the requirements or not:
- RAM – 1GB
- ext4 partition – 20 GB
- PAE support – Required
Xubuntu can run well on a 512 MB RAM but that’s not recommended as you won’t be able to enjoy smooth computing.
Well, there are some users who tend to vote towards cool looks rather than minimalism. I’m not implying XFCE is minimalistic! However, it lacks GNOME, KDE, Cinnamon, etc when it comes to the visual look and feel: the animation, slightly heavy use of composition, cool layout in windowing, etc. But that’s the tradeoff when lightweight is considered a priority over computer resources.
