Nice blog. But there is one piece of info that is not correct. Ubuntu 10.04 is not more easy to use than 13 Mate. Mate is probably the easiest Linux to use, and one of the best. So I cannot see any reason to use Ubuntu. :wink:

I agree with you on that point completely. Ubuntu is not that easy to use at all. I think Cinnamon is the easiest to use. But I prefer KDE.

w2ibc,

I agree. I like xfce too. It works and does everything I need it too.

My thing is that the desktop is really only good for fast file navigation. Anthing beyond that creates unnecessary bloat and it opens the door for unwanted bugs.

Don't you mean 12.04? There's no mentioning of 10.04 in that blog and 10.04 looks rather outdated compared to 12.04 although the Gnome2 desktop environment and the easy way of chaninging everything is much better under 10.04 than under 12.04 with it's Gnome3/Unity desktop.
