    Ubuntu and Xubuntu on same computer??
    I had Ubuntu 14.04 Unity installed and it was/is running well. I read an article by Carla Schroder at linux.com titled [i]The 7 Best Linux Distros for 2014[/i]. In the article she stated that if you were running Ubuntu Unity and did not like it that you could install Xubuntu via [i]apt-get install xubuntu-desktop[/i] and then when you booted your computer you could [i]choose[/i] which one you wanted to use, in my case it would have been Ubuntu or Xubuntu. Well I did as she suggested and Xubuntu seemed to install well. [i][b]However[/b][/i], when I re-booted my computer I was [b]not[/b] given the option of which version I wanted to use. The computer booted straight to Xubuntu. What am I missing here?? Any help would be much appreciated, as I am a newly converted Windows user. :) :) Thank you for your time. -- JamesKB
