Mint Enlightenment

| More importantly, it was fast. It wasnât up 
| to Fluxboxâs level of performance, but it 
| was enough to make me seriously rethink 
| whether I wanted to stick with LXDE. Iâm 
| not going to go into a full-bore review of 
| MoonOS here. Suffice to say, that little 
| foray gave me some incentive to revisit my 
| window management strategy. I broke out one 
| of the old laptops and proceeded to install 
| Linux Mint Fluxbox Community Edition. With 
| that as my starting point, it was time to 
| install Enlightenment.


Lubuntu (w/ LXDE) 10.04 Lucid Lynx Alpha 3 Released With 4 New Default Apps And New Artwork (Screenshots)

,----[ Quote ]
| The most important changes in Lubuntu Alpha 
| 3 are 4 new default applications: Chromium 
| for the browser, gnome-mplayer as the 
| default media player, Wicd has been 
| replaced with the Network Manager and 
| Pcmanfm2 as the default file manager but 
| we've already told you about that about a 
| week ago.


Lubuntu looks familiar! â Hint: Xandros

,----[ Quote ]
| Folks at Ubuntu have rolled-out Alpha 3 of 
| Lubuntu. To us, the most exiting feature 
| this version brings with it is the Lubuntu 
| Netbook session which has a striking 
| resemblance to the Xandros interface that 
| was made popular by the first gen-Eee PCs 
| by Asus. 


Kubuntu is awesome!

| Why do many people use Gnome as their 
| window manager for Linux?  It seems 
| Ubuntu.com markets the distribution which 
| contains Gnome pre-installed. For example, 
| the live CD contains Gnome and for this 
| reason many new users seem to think this is 
| their limitation as far desktop interface 
| goes.



Lubuntu: Not Just for Lusers

,----[ Quote ]
| For a long time, the Ubuntu family has had
| three membersâUbuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu
| (sorry Edubuntu; weâre not counting you).
| But that may change, with a new project,
| Lubuntu, vying for official endorsement by
| Canonical.  Hereâs a look at Lubuntu, and
| thoughts on what its future may hold.
| The Lubuntu project, which was established
| a year ago as a community endeavor, aims to
| create a lightweight Linux distribution
| based on Ubuntu.  Towards this end, it uses
| the LXDE desktop environment in combination
| with the Openbox window manager to keep the
| demand on system resources low.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
