== What is Lubuntu ? ==

Lubuntu is a project to make a Ubuntu variant using the LXDE desktop. It’s designed to be a lightweight and easy-to-use desktop environment. Lubuntu is currently not part of the Ubuntu family, and not build with the current Ubuntu infrastructure. This release is considered as a « stable beta », a result that could be a final and stable release if it was included in the Ubuntu family. Please note also that Lubuntu 10.04 is not a LTS version.

== Features ==

  • Based on the lightweight LXDE desktop environment.
  • Pcmanfm 0.9.5, the rewrite of pcmanfm using gio/gvfs.
  • Lxdm, a new and lightweight GTK display manager.
  • Chromium, the open-source version of Google Chrome.
  • … and, of course, based on Ubuntu 10.04
