I have just had a look at Xubuntu 16.04 which is just out. I ran it
from a USB stick, I did not install it.

So far I have not got on very well. For a start the new software
package would not do a search for me. I wanted to install synaptic so I
had to use apt-get install to do it. Bad start.

Just wondering if anyone else has had a look at it. I do like Xfce
desktop but the way it is looking now I will be seriously considering
Linux Mint Rosa Xfce instead of Xubuntu.


I use Xubuntu on three machines here - none have offered to upgrade yet. New Laptop arriving soon so will install xubuntu on that and give it a little whirl before making it mine. It seems a general thing to add some software manager but I always hit the command line and install synaptic first off. I used mint for while but found that interfered a bit too much to and reverted to Xfce - having dropped the mint to xfce desktop - I just always seem to come to the conclusion that if something makes a subset easier it just makes the remaining stuff harder.
