lubuntu Lucid Beta 1 released

Julien Lavergne has released lubuntu Lucid Beta 1. Don’t forget that it’s build with Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) which is still in Beta state of development, so same warnings:

“Pre-releases of Lucid are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.”

We passed Feature Freeze, that means most of the features should now be available. It’s now time for testing and fixing bugs.

    I have downloaded the ISO file and put it on USB memory. I booted on it and the live system worked fine. The system is very responsive and I think that default applications are great.

    All hardware on my min HP-110 was recognized. I use LXDE with my DEBIAN unstable and I think that is a great idea to put LXDE with Ubuntu to avoid long configuration like I did with DEBIAN.

    Lubuntu is good alternative for limited PCs.

    I’ll install the 10.04 release.

    Will be released a 64 bit version too? I know lubuntu runs good on older hardware, but doesn’t it work even better on newer hardware?

    As blessed buyer of an ASUS eeepc 900, I’m absorbed in a light-weight OS. Put lubuntu on a USB stick and took it for a spin. Overall acquaintance actual good. Just a few remarks/questions:

    Although I’m blessed with Abiword in itself, I charge OpenOffice for its affinity with Microsoft OfficeLotus certificationNo problem: installed OpenOffce through synaptic. Worked fine, except that buttons in theISEB certificationwordprocessor are absolute animal with rediculously ample icons for bold/italic/underline for instance. They are abundant bigger in the OpenOffice supplied with Lucid. Can that be changed?

    It is apparently my abridgement of insight, but I could not acquisition aJuniper Networks certificationambience acceptance foLpi certificationtwo-finger touchpad scrolling. What did I miss?Keep up the acceptable plan and absorbed to see abiding adaptation in due course.
