[svlug] Fluxbunut & Xubuntu

I meant that Xubuntu is maintained by the Ubuntu
team and that Fluxbuntu is not. That's what I 
gathered from my research anyway.

Rick, much thanks for all the info on your 
experiences with Xubuntu. And I think our 
definition of a "clean" desktop are much in line.

We used Ubuntu before, but I found things like 
bouncing mouse icons while waiting for an app to 
open far too reminiscent of a certain operation 
system I try to avoid.

I was searching at that time for a desktop less 
cluttered, more along the lines of the HP-UX and 
Solaris workstations I had used in the past at 
previous jobs. Something less glitzy and more 
"let's get down to work."

Thanks again for all the input!
