Desktop Linux Reviews: "Lubuntu 10.04 is not an official derivative of Ubuntu; it is not supported by Canonical. However, it is serves a very important purpose by providing an Ubuntu distro geared toward older or less powerful computers."
A quick intro: I've been a huge Linux fan for a while. I tried PC OS Linux first.
Moved onto Puppy, DSL and settled finally on Ubuntu. I also use Lubuntu
For those who have not heard of Lubuntu. Its based on Ubuntu but uses less
Ram and disk space. Yes, Xubuntu is also fine but this is a sweet OS.
In my last review I considered Kubuntu 11.04 as an alternative to Ubuntu for disgruntled Ubuntu users. But there's another Ubuntu derivative that should be taken into consideration as well: Lubuntu 11.04.
Lubuntu uses the LXDE desktop environment, a much simpler and faster alternative to Unity, GNOME and KDE.
