Minimal Desktop for Ubuntu is a shell script designed to be run following the installation of the Ubuntu command-line system available on the Alternate and Netboot install CDs. It builds a stripped-down graphical environment, allowing the user to select which windowing environment, Web browser, IM client, office suite, and media player they want before they are installed.
