    Don’t try different DE, that’s what Ubuntu flavors are for. Test Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu Budgie, etc., and install the one you like.

    Only install Java if you really need it to run applications, you will know if you need it. If you don’t know what it is or if you need it, you probably don’t need to install it. Browsers don’t use Java like before as websites now use CSS, HTML, and JavaScript.

    And why would you recommend SystemBack? Its development and support stopped in 2016 and there’s no package for any Ubuntu release after 16.10 in the ppa. Déjà Dup is an alternative and comes installed by default in Ubuntu. Or Timeshift from ppa:teejee2008/ppa

      I am agree with you, don’t try different DE in Ubuntu, instead go with DE flvarous like you mentioned, but still we have added the instructions for DE’s if anyone wants to try…

      Replaced SystemBackup with Timeshift, as per your request..

    Trying different desktop environments is not recommended since you might end up with a buggy overcharged system. Stick with the native DE and you’ll be grateful.
