Zorin OS 3 Is Based on Ubuntu 10.04

,----[ Quote ]
| Zorin OS is an Ubuntu-based Linux OS aimed at 
| novice users who may be taking their first steps 
| into the Linux world after having employed 
| Windows all their lives. The latest release, 
| Zorin OS 3, is the most polished version yet and 
| comes with some interesting, new features. Top 
| among these is the Zorin Look Changer, a tool 
| that enables one to customize the way their 
| desktop looks and acts depending on their 
| preferences or what theyâre used to.

| Summary: 	Lubuntu 10.04 provides a functional, 
| fast desktop environment. It eschews glitz and 
| eye-candy bloat in favor of speed and low use of 
| system resources.
| Rating: 	4/5



Lubuntu 10.04 - Distro Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Lubuntu has come a long way from it's first
| release with 9.10 just last year. This
| 10.04 release is a fantastic addition to
| the world of light weight Linux distros and
| just like the others in the *buntu family I
| have no doubt it will adopted by many for
| use on slower/older computers.


Lubuntu 10.04

| Lubuntu is a faster, more lightweight and
| energy saving variant of Ubuntu using
| LXDE, the Lightweight X11 Desktop
| Environment. The Lubuntu team aims to earn
| official endorsement from Canonical.

| I was pleasantly surprised and quite liked
| the Netbook mode, which give us a
| different from the traditional desktop as
| an alternative. I also like the way to
| manage start-up login, where it allows us
| to start with the default LXDE desktop or
| with Lubuntu Netbook mode.


Lubuntu Netbook Remix: A Look

,----[ Quote ]
| All in all, thereâs not much else to say
| about how LNR actually works.  Itâs a
| simple, straightforward product; what you
| see is what you get.  When I was using it,
| the only criticism I had was that there
| are no keyboard shortcuts for navigating
| between the different categories of the
| netbook interface.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
