It’s been a long time since I paid much attention to Xubuntu. That’s probably a good thing, since I was wasting a lot of my time wringing my hands over the fact that it had gained so much weight.
And it really must be a long time since I even considered Xubuntu for anything, because the idea of turning on Compiz by default made me laugh. It will sound snide, but I realize that the reason it was so funny to me is that people still think Xubuntu is intended for older hardware. The fact that it’s even discussed should be a clue to the contrary.
But I’ll stop there and let that issue fade. I’ve been over the point so many times it doesn’t even appeal to me any more. I don’t follow the mailing list any longer and I don’t even download the ISO, so my opinion is of little consequence. I voted in the poll after thinking it over, and maybe my opinion is contrary to what might be expected.
But I’m not a Xubuntu user or follower any longer; I’ve moved on … which is probably best for everybody. Any hubbub over Compiz or no Compiz is just a faraway echo now.
