Offtopic: a bit humour
True story Smile

Today I've read about MS isn't going to support DVD movies in the standard Windows 8.
You can buy the media center as an option to make it work.
I was going to tell my son about it, and he asked me... what now?
I say: 'What do you expect? Crack!'
Son: 'Dad, that sounds like Window users are junkies...'
I: speechless...

Damn those kids Tongue

Yes ... kids :]
Today I travelled by tram and a small kid asked his mom : "How much does the tram cost?"
Mom : "A lot!"
Kid : "100 Crowns?"
Mom : ---
Kid : "So ... 200 Crowns?"
Mom : "Be quiet honey!"
Kid : "Will you buy me a tram?"

My son is 15 (and the yougest) I have 2 daughters, one from almost 18 and the oldest is 20. My stephdaughter is 13..
Only the the 2 youngest kids are living with me (divorce issues).
They keep me busy, yesterday I've upgraded my sons pc (normally he does it on his own) but he wasn't to sure about it. So now his Minecraft-console is running Xubuntu 12.04.. And I'm pretty sure that my stephdaughters is the next one.. (It's now running Mint). All for speed cases... wait a minute.. speed? Those junkies! Tongue

They were using Ubuntu and Mint (Gnome 2) and the idea that Gnome 3 or Unity makes it slower was something they were not keen about Tongue
And dad is not gonna replace the machines every 6 months, so this is the alternative Tongue

But Xubuntu works fine (lucky me, otherwise I have to look for something else...)

xubuntu is based on Xfce ... of course you can install other WMs, but why would anyone do that? Big Grin

For the fun and speed :]
I've done many Ubuntu netinstalls with only lightweigth programs (openbox, lxpanel, pcmanfm, abiword, gnumeric etc..) No compiz or whatever..
It saves you the work of removing unwanted software.
I like the idea to build things up instead of tear down :]

Y U NO TRY ARCHLINUX!, basically you configure and install everything.
Actually I have XFCE 4.10 and Linux Kernel 3.3.5-1-ARCH, so the speed is very good.
