What is Xubuntu?

Xubuntu is an elegant and easy-to-use operating system. Xubuntu comes with Xfce, which is a stable, light and configurable desktop environment. It is perfect for those who want to make the most of their desktops, laptops and netbooks, featuring a modern look and enough features for efficient, daily usage. It works well on older hardware too. Learn more about the name, version numbering and what makes Xubuntu what it is on the Xubuntu documentation.

Ideals behind Xubuntu

The Xubuntu team has four major areas of focus. These guidelines help the developers work in a way that benefits the Xubuntu users most.

Xubuntu should help the user to accomplish their task, not be in the way. Furthermore, the various aspects of Xubuntu should be configurable.

Xubuntu should allow the user to get the most out of their hardware while being user-friendly. It should be lightweight enough to run on moderately old machines as well.

Ready to use product.
The Xubuntu experience should be smooth and unified from the boot to the shutdown. All aspects of the operating system should be integrated and polished.

The community infrastructure and communication should be robust enough to enable the contributors to direct their efforts into making Xubuntu better and not resolve irrelevant issues.

To read more about the ideals behind Xubuntu, refer to the Xubuntu Strategy Document. As a part of the broader Ubuntu community, the Xubuntu community is built around the ideals enshrined in the Ubuntu Philosophy.

Minimum system requirements

To install and use Xubuntu, you need at least 512 MB of memory. You can also try Xubuntu within the Desktop DVD with the same amount of memory. Keep in mind that running the system from a DVD will be slower than an installed system.

When you install Xubuntu from the Desktop DVD, you need about 7.5 GB of free space on your hard disk.
Your processor needs to support PAE in order to run Xubuntu.

Recommended system resources

To get a smooth experience when running multiple applications parallel on the desktop, it is recommended to have at least 1 GB of memory.
It is recommended to have at least 20 GB of free space on your hard disk. This allows new application installations as well as saving your personal data on the hard disk in addition to the core system.
