Ubuntu Open Week: Day Three

People attending day three of Ubuntu Open Week were treated to a full day of of some of the most diverse sessions yet. From a Q & A session featuring Community Manager Jono Bacon, to a look at how to produce podcasts in Ubuntu, there were all sorts of cool things to learn about during the course of another busy day at the online conference.

Cody Somerville ran a session on Xubuntu that covered the official Ubuntu derivative in detail. "As an official derivative, Xubuntu uses the same archive as Ubuntu does offering you all the same packages," says Somerville. "The difference between Xubuntu and Ubuntu is the set of packages that are installed by default. Xubuntu uses the Xfce4 desktop environment which prides its self on being light weight and fast while remaining user friendly."
