Based on Ubuntu 13.04 64bit with Gnome 3.8 and Cairo-Dock 3.2.1
Version 13 (130504) of ExTiX 64bit is based on Ubuntu 13.04 released on April 25, 2013. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). In ExTiX 13 I have removed Unity and installed Gnome 3.8 and Cairo-Dock 3.2.1 instead. The system language is English.

I had lots of bugs with Ubuntu 12.04 64bit but I liked the screenshots on distrowatch. Hence I gave it a go. Install was only possible via live - gnome session and my username was not taken. But hey all the rest is perfect. It looks good and I haven't found one single bug so far!
Very nice (clean) linux desktop. Runs very well from DVD (much better then many I have tried before). Harddisk instakllation is also easy. No distro if you want 20 programs to do the same thing. Comes standard with all media support (file types) to view YouTube etc. out of the box (fresh install)
