comment How many years of support I would get if I install multiple desktop environments?
Essentialy,yes- to a certain extent. Don't expect built in support for things you add on, just for how it came. i.e : install jwm on ubuntu then have fun, just don't expect support for the jwm portion of it. Think like this, you buy a car with no cup holder- even though the car might still recieve support, the cup-holder dosen't.

I am guessing that you want to keep xp on sda, right? what if you just switch the data cables on the drives to switch them, then do the 'More Typing Way'? It should have xubuntu on it so it has a boot directory and the grub install should pick up your xp for you.

comment xubuntu 12.10 install to sdb, no grub
As I understand it, your internal hd is sda, and the external is sdb. have installed xubuntu (my choice also!) onto an external (sdb) and just want to boot, with grub on the internal(sda) to the xubuntu on sdb?

I went through all the trouble of typing libhybris info google and wlicked the 2nd link... phoronix EDIT: (to be more complete for those who are unable to google) So, introducing libhybris, github.com/stskeeps/libhybris - Hybris is a solution that commits hybris, by allowing us to use bionic-based HW adaptations in glibc systems.
