The Xubuntu strategy

A while ago, there was a little disagreement in the Xubuntu developer community. Since it did not look like the dispute was going to be resolved on the developer mailinglist, an online meeting was held led by Canonical‘s Ubuntu Community Manager Jono Bacon.

That meeting led to several decisions, the most important one being that Cody Somerville was appointed as Xubuntu’s project leader and assigned to create a strategy for Xubuntu, so that everybody knows where Xubuntu stands and what its goals are.

Well, Cody set to the task and, after gathering feedback at the Ubuntu Developer Summit, came up with the first draft of what is to be the Xubuntu Strategy Document.

This being a first draft, everybody is invited to send feedback to Cody’s email address

My first impression was that Cody did a great job on this one: Xubuntu has a bright future ahead under his lead 🙂

  1. Thanks Vincent! 🙂 Xubuntu wouldn’t be the same without you.

  2. I am a n00b when it comes to linux. I installed xubuntu on an old piii 700mhz system which surprisingly runs great. I must wholeheartedly disagree with this supposed “strategy for Xubuntu. My main gripe is the mixed claim that xubuntu will not specifically focus on users not only migrating from windows but also on users that have lower powered/older machines.

    The majority of the press around xubuntu and/or Xfce are based around reviving older computers with a modern operating system. Ubuntu and Kubuntu have done a great job at catering to users that do have relatively modern computers that are interested in a windows alternative.

    Not catering to unfamiliar windows users and those that do not have high end computers literally leaves it as nothing more than a stripped down ubuntu for no particular purpose.
