Hi Peter,

If you're going to use any Buntu at all, I'd like to recommend Lubuntu,
which is Ubuntu using the LXDE GOSFUI (a GOSFUI is a user interface
that is either a window manager or a desktop environment). LXDE is very
lightweight, and my experience with a couple years of Lubuntu use under
my belt is it's like adding more RAM and speeding up your processor.

And, as always, I recommend to every touch-typist that whatever GOSFUI
you're using, you install dmenu and hotkey it in to your GOSFUI. Your
productivity will skyrocket.
