Xubuntu Linux

Xubuntu Linux is a free Ubuntu derived Linux distribution which uses the Xfce desktop environment instead of the Gnome desktop of Ubuntu and KDE desktop used by Kubuntu.

Because it is based on Debian, Xubuntu Linux uses the deb package format and can be updated using the Synaptic package management tool from the Ubuntu repositories. Synaptic is a GUI based tool for installing, updating and deleting installed packages on the system.
