I tried Unity after Ubu 10.10 (?) was released, but ditched it for the
old gnome UI after a few mins.

More recently, I've been mucking about with Lubuntu (Ubuntu with
LXDE), which has been on the whole positive. The UI is snappy on old
H/W, although lacks a few niceties which were useful with gnome. Some
of the default apps are quite lightweight, so they have occasional
missing features. I still need to get around to researching/sorting
out monitor switching. Generally speaking, the UI doesn't get in the
way of doing work, and has been pretty straightforward to tweak.

Has anyone here tried Xubuntu?
