We have chosen to include the Xubuntu Linux distribution which operates under the GNU General Public License (GPL) and all of the application software installed by default is free software. Xubuntu is developed by a community of programers whose goals are to “provide an easy to use distribution, based on Ubuntu, using Xfce as the graphical desktop, with a focus on integration, usability and performance, with a particular focus on low memory footprint. The integration in Xubuntu is at a configuration level, a toolkit level, and matching the underlying technology beneath the desktop in Ubuntu.”
The minimum system requirements for Xubunutu is a 32-bit processor, a minimum of 1GB of RAM and 7.5GB of free space on your hard drive. This makes it a great operating system for breathing new life into older systems that struggle or can no longer run the latest versions of Windows or MacOS. Plus, with an internet connection you have access to the Ubuntu software repository with thousands of free applications for graphics, video editing, desktop publishing, utilities, and more.
