I would like to see a full build with Xubuntu before changing to another DE.
This way we will know if disk space is still an issue, perhaps the extra 
disk space can be cut down.

Personally I have not used LXDE, but I have heard that it is very 
limited (some people call it a non-deskop but of course DE flame wars 
are well known...).

On the other hand, staying to 12.04.2 would be a safe choice, it is 
pretty stable at the moment....

So our options:
1. Xubuntu 13.04 (alpha1)
2. Lubuntu 13.04
3. Xubuntu 12.04.2
