http://ubuntuforums.org – Bear with me, some explanation & background required ... Thanks! Starting with Ubuntu 9.04 I really fell for Linux and made it my full time permanent OS after nearly 20 years with Windoze. Like many others here I've tried numerous distributions extensively ... Debian, Suse, Fedora, Mint, and so on. Xubuntu along with Compiz and more recently Mate is what I like and prefer, been using those for the past year and a half.
