One of the best distributions with XFCE desktop. New versions are based on Debian instead of Xubuntu.

Emmabuntus team wants to convert recycled computers to modern and complete systems, and I can say that the aim is reached. The key is to use XFCE desktop, an easier and more complete option than LXDE or similar in the same range of RAM consuming.

There could be a download option for a system without such an amount of applications for people with slow internet connections, and a forum in English for international users.
