"Xubuntu" = shared Ubuntu core OS + Xfce4/GTK2 metapackage "xubuntu-desktop"
"Edubuntu" = shared Ubuntu core OS + kids' apps metapackage "edubuntu-desktop"

Xubuntu is the fourth flavour to be released, and will be officially
supported and complete as of Dapper Drake's April release.  The point is
that each *ubuntu installable CD provides _one_ of the metapackages, but
any or all of the others can then be retrofitted by "sudo apt-get install".
