-Xubuntu Core is a slimmed down version of Xubuntu that doesn’t come with all the additional applications that the current Xubuntu desktop ISOs have. It essentially only ships Xfce and the basic look and feel of Xubuntu, so there will be no office suite, media players, etc, etc.
+Xubuntu Core is a slimmed down version of Xubuntu that doesn’t come with many of the applications, plugins, and libraries that the default Xubuntu desktop ISOs have. It essentially only ships Xfce apps (window manager, panel, file manager) and the basic look and feel of Xubuntu, so there will be no browser, email client, text editor, file search, office suite, image or media player, package or update managers, community wallpapers, etc, etc.
-The obvious benefit is that this ISO will be faster to download – especially interesting for those with limited connectivity – and only adding what *you* want.
+The obvious benefit of a Xubuntu Core ISO will be faster downloading – especially interesting for those with limited connectivity – and you can then add only what *you* want.
-I have been working on this for a couple releases now, and starting with Utopic it's available as a task and metapackage. There are ISOs which I've built, and starting with Wily, the plan is to produce official Xubuntu release ISOs on Ubuntu infrastructure.

+Since Xubuntu 14.10 Utopic, it's available as a task and metapackage. The goal of this is not to create a lightweight version of Xubuntu, but more targeted towards advanced users to give them a base to work off of. See also link:https://docs.xubuntu.org/current/user/C/appendix-packages.html[Appendix A] of the Xubuntu docs.
=== Does this have anything to do with Snappy, Ubuntu Core, or Convergence? ===
Nope, not a dang thing.
-=== Installation ===
+=== Official Installation Method ===
The current official method is to download the link:https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD[mini.iso], install, and when prompted, install the 'Xubuntu minimal installation' task. If you’d prefer to wait until after the installer finishes to install the Xubuntu core task, you can simply type `sudo apt-get install xubuntu-core^` (don’t forget the caret!) and away it’ll go.
-Of courses, if you won't have internet during installation, or don't want to mess with the mini.iso, tasks, and the Debian installer, you can install from the ISO I've produced on the downloads page.
