The latest Ubuntu-related announcement this week is the debut of Xubuntu Core.

Xubuntu Core though isn't to be confused with Ubuntu Core or Snappy package management as is the case with upstream Ubuntu. Xubuntu Core is simply a slimmed down version of the Xfce version of Ubuntu.

Xubuntu Core is the Xfce version of Ubuntu with still having the basic lightweight desktop but not much more beyond that: no office suite, media players, or other software to weigh down the ISO. Xubuntu Core is being made so that it can fit on a CD, be easier to download for those on reduced Internet connections, and those wanting to selectively customize their software stack pst-install.

More details on Xubuntu Core can be found via today's announcement at Xubuntu.org.
