http://desktoplinuxreviews.com – 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. Lubuntu also users PCmanfm as its file manager, and comes with Chromium as its default browser. Openbox is Lubuntu's window manager. Until now Lubuntu has been considered an "unofficial" Ubuntu derivative but that's about to change with the eventual release of Lubuntu 11.10. (Distributions)
