I migrated from Windows7 about a year ago. I found Ubuntu 11.04 and fell in love. I have not been back to Windows since. I upgraded to 11.10 and started to realize that even though I left Windows for Unity, I was sort of getting annoyed with a few minor things. I started to play with AWN dock and Cairo, but they did not make sense in Ubuntu 11.10 because of the panel on the left side. I then discovered elementary, but thought it was a step down from 11.10 because it lacked some of the features. I tried out GNOME 3 and was immediately appalled. I just can not come to grips with GNOME 3 at this point in time. I was playing with Xubuntu on live CD and kept on booting up to it. I finally made the decision to switch to XFCE about 2 month ago and have not looked back. I absolutely love it!!!! This is the best experience I have had yet. Customizable, fast, beautiful, what else could anyone ask for? I installed AWN dock and Synapse. I have never been more productive:) I thinks a lot of people are going to migrate to Xubuntu like I have. One they discover it, they will not be sorry.
Happy Holidays and Welcome to Xfce Ernie. I'm running slackware64 current with XFCE 4.6.2... What do use to print from in Xfce? Thanks
