    Xubuntu Desktop key features

    Xubuntu is a lightweight variant of the popular Ubuntu distribution that uses the Xfce graphical environment instead of GNOME.

    Lightweight Desktop Environment
    The Xfce desktop environment provides a balance between functionality and resource consumption, resulting in better performance especially for systems with limited resources.
    Efficient Use of Resources
    With its focus on efficiency, Xubuntu is known to be less taxing on system resources, which can lead to overall snappier performance.
    Fast Startup Time
    The operating system boots quickly due to the optimized nature of the desktop environment and fewer pre-installed default applications, allowing users more time for productivity.
    Xubuntu comes with good security features out of the box, such as AppArmor (a Linux kernel enhancement that isolates programs to increase system stability and security), regular updates, and an option to encrypt your home directory during installation.
    Software Center
    The default Software Center in Xubuntu offers a wide range of applications that are pre-selected based on their usage frequency or importance for the average user, making it easier for new users to find essential software without overwhelming options.
    Power Management Tools
    Built-in energy management tools help you conserve system resources.
    Customization Options
    Xubuntu provides several customization options through the Appearance settings menu where users can change themes, icons, fonts, and more to personalize their desktop environment.
    Application Menu
    The Whisker Menu is a full-featured application launcher with support for categories and filtering, helping users navigate installed applications easily without needing to search through the entire system.
    Community Support
    Xubuntu benefits from being part of the Ubuntu family but has its dedicated community forum where users can seek help, share experiences, and contribute to development discussions specifically related to Xubuntu.

    What customers say

    After launching another successful IP — HUNT: Showdown, a competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements, Crytek aimed to bring this amazing game for its end-users. We needed a hosting provider that can offer us high-performance servers with great network speed, latency, and 24/7 support.
    Stefan Neykov Crytek
    doXray has been using HOSTKEY for the development and the operation of our software solutions. Our applications require the use of GPU processing power. We have been using HOSTKEY for several years and we are very satisfied with the way they operate. New requirements are setup fast and support follows up after the installation process to check if everything is as requested. Support during operations is reliable and fast.
