What is Lubuntu
Lubuntu is 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. For the future we aim to include all packages of lubuntu in the Ubuntu repository.
– 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

Thanks to the LXDE team for providing this nice desktop environment. Thanks to Rafael for his wonderful work on the artwork.

Thanks to all people which help to provide support and documentation to new Lubuntu users. It was a pleasure to work with you. This release is not an end, but just the beginning.
