As a result of my growing concern over privacy and for other purposes, I decided I would take up a 30-day challenge. Yeah…like the one that Matt Cutts gave a TED Talk about. I would switch to a Community Flavor and see how it worked and see if I could keep it as my desktop instead of Ubuntu.
The requirements I had for desktop challenge:
- Must be Ubuntu Community Flavor
- Firefox shipped as default browser
- Preference to lighter weight DE
- Solid Support and Dev Sub-Community
- Must respect privacy
The conclusion for me based on those requirements was that Xubuntu was the best candidate for my 30-day challenge although I did consider Kubuntu. But their lack of shipping Firefox as a default was a deal breaker for me even though they still have an equally crisp desktop.
Will you be taking up a 30-day challenge?
