Once you find the way to change the Russian language to English - Runtu is a breeze. It took me a while to figure out to nudge the highlite bar down 1 notch or 2 and then to press F2 to get there. But then - what a wonderful OS you have in front of you!

All important programs are there, Office, screenshooter, Firefox, Thunar, VLC etc, only I had to install - from the included Synaptic program manager - the "lightning" extension for "Thunderbird" in order to have a calendar. I also installed quite a few other tools and games such as "Double Commander", "Gnome Commander", "Gnome Disk Utility" and HP Toolbox to name a few.

The system took them all without blinking an eye-lid. Although I have a German keyboard with no dead keys the system gave me no trouble. I installed the system onto a 32 gig stick (USB III) and I found it to be very fast !!

Runtu XFCE is really an improved version of Xubuntu - and a good one at that. I would recommend it highly !!
