Before posting this, I looked at a similar thread, but could not find what I was looking for.
I am using Ubuntu at present. Learnt about kubuntu & xubuntu recently. Visited its websites to find out details. Learnt that these are based on ubuntu. KUbuntu uses KDE graphical environment. XUbuntu uses XFCE graphical environment.
Programming for database oriented business apps using MySQL & Python. Use online stock-trading terminal based on Java.
Should I go for Ubuntu or XUbuntu or Kubuntu? (I read that Xubuntu is faster than Kubuntu).
I am going to format my laptop. Before that, I want to download a latest copy of a good open source OS.
Can anyone please share on the following points:
Whether the default Xubuntu / Kubuntu installation is packed with open source software packages such as MySQL, Python, etc. or I need to download those separately?
Compared to Ubuntu, whether Xubuntu / Kubuntu have the 'software centre' which can take care of new / old installation of packages.
No setting-up of wireless internet was required in my existing Ubuntu. It was automatically detected & taken care of by the OS. What about Xubuntu / KUbuntu?
Performance point of view, how do they compare? e.g. My Ubuntu OS starts within 10 sec & shuts down in 3 secs
Any other plus or minus points of Xubuntu/Kubuntu over Ubuntu.
Thanks in advance,
