I run Xubuntu on an ancient tower desktop, and I consider it my primary machine even over my relatively new laptop running another a distro. I like XFCE. I can configure my UI to my heart's content. It is resource efficient. I have five desktops which usually all have something on them whether it is a browser, LibreOffice, an email client, virtual box, and it still is quick rarely consuming more than 1.5gb of RAM (750mb resting). It seems slim. Whether it actually is or not, I don't really know. It seems to lack some of the bloat of other Ubuntu/user friendly distros. It breathed life into an old machine that really had nothing going for it anymore, and for that I cannot recommend this distro highly enough.

Fun aside: I also installed GNOME shell should I opt for a change of pace.
