Welcome to Xubuntu 13.10, codenamed Saucy Salamander.

Getting Xubuntu 13.10

Download a Disk Image

Bootable images for standard PCs/laptops/netbooks

Instructions for burning the image to a DVD or USB flash drive can be found on the Burning ISO Howto.

We recommend you learn how to check your image file so your pre-release is as it’s supposed to be. Compare your MD5 checksum with the correct ones found alongside the images.
