I havent used the latest xubuntu. But I guess they have a feature like
windows, wherein if the condex is not present, it connects to the net and
installed the proper codex.

Also I feel that the user should take into account the strength of the
distro - ie the distro should be present say after 3 years or 5 years...
Xubuntu is in a better posistion of being sustained longer than the other
two.


A question:
Out of the 3 distros, which has the maximum softwares in its repo?
Above also should be considered.
