Emmabuntus is one of the best five XFCE distros out there.

This new version 3 (still alpha) based on Debian 10 Buster is very promising: Almost everything works with no problem at all.

I can understand the reason for such a huge amount of software included (to distribute it to communities with no internet connection), but maybe there could be a smaller versión for people with no such a problem.

And I'd recommend a new name for the distro because it is no longer based on Ubuntu.

Great, great distribution!!

I really love this distro. Its Debian base provides excellent stability and security. Xfce desktop will work on almost every kind of hardware.

There's a rich selection of default apps/software for every kind of usage. Theme and icons are sweet, and the first-start assistant will be useful to beginners.

Thanks to Emmabuntus.
