Xubuntu installs the Xfce desktop with Gnome applications like
NetworkManager, GConf, Gnome icons & themes, Keyring, Gparted, and
lots more.

That's why I always start with a CLI Ubuntu install and install Xfce*)
myself. I don't like "lots more" ;)


*) xfce4-session, xfwm4, xfce4-power-manager, xfce4-panel and a couple
of panel plugins; no xfdesktop4 since I seldom see my desktop.
