Let me set the tone of the review at the very beginning itself, these words are from the Xubuntu 13.04 release notes:
These words more or less sum up the incremental changes in the present release. Of course, XFCE never had any drastic shake ups like Gnome or KDE. More or less, things remained the same and supremely stable. With Gnome 2 being part of Linux history and things life complicated in Gnome 3, a lot of users, like me, have found solace in XFCE for good reasons.
"The Xubuntu team is glad to announce the immediate release of Xubuntu 13.04. Xubuntu 13.04 will be supported for 9 months and will need other media such as a USB device or a DVD to install. What's new in Xubuntu 13.04? Xubuntu 13.04 is mostly a maintenance release, and there aren't many new features. However, there are some changes, which include: Gnumeric and GIMP are reintroduced on the ISO image; new application versions - Catfish 0.6.1 and Parole 0.5.0 with many bug fixes; updates for the Greybird theme and a new wallpaper; duplicate partitions are no longer shown on desktop or Thunar; updated documentation. Starting with 13.04, the Xubuntu images will not fit on standard CDs. This is an effect of changing the target size to a 1GB USB device."
