Developer's Description

Get the lightweight and energy saving variant of Ubuntu by using LXDE.
The objective of the lubuntu project is to create a faster, more lightweight and energy saving variant of Ubuntu by using LXDE, The Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment, as its default GUI. The LXDE desktop uses the Openbox window manager and is intended to be a low system requirement, low RAM environment for netbooks, mobile devices and older PCs. In this role it will compete with Xubuntu. An initial review claims it uses half as much RAM as Xubuntu or Ubuntu on a normal installation or in typical use.
