Xubuntu is a community developed, Ubuntu-based (Ubuntu with XFCE desktop environment) GNU/Linux operating system. This tag is not meant to be used as a wildcard as to the desktop environment variant of Ubuntu that you are asking about.

Xubuntu is intended to be an elegant and easy-to-use operating system. It comes with Xfce, which is a stable, light and configurable desktop environment.

Xubuntu is designed to have a modern look and enough features for efficient daily usage. It works well on older hardware too.

The developers of Xubuntu focus on

  • usability - the OS should be functional and easy to use, not laden with unnecessary features
  • performance - the user should be able to get the best from their hardware
  • smooth running - integration and polish
  • community - the infrastructure and communication should create the most helpful environment to improve Xubuntu.
