My System Specs

Guess it's time to update! Also switching the Macbook Pro over to Ubuntu as soon as I get a chance. Gone will be that disgusting Unity desktop...and hello to XFCE. Though stripping down KDE is quite usable as well.

Any version of Ubuntu can be changed to any desktop environment you want. There's plenty of step by step guides out there.

I did not know that. I am still a newbie when it comes to Linux.
