Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu Linux has millions of fans. What's not to like? A free operating system with ten thousand free applications, websites covering everything you might ever want to know, tutorials, active forums, and more. Yet for all these benefits, situations pop up when you want a faster, lighter operating system. Perhaps you have an older computer, or maybe a netbook or a mobile device. Wouldn't it be great to have a lightweight Ubuntu? That day has finally arrived. Lubuntu offers a way to stay in the Ubuntu family -- with a product that performs better and uses fewer resources.

GALPon MiniNo is better for ten years old computers, it's impossible to install Lubuntu in my old Toshiba, for example, because Lubuntu shares kernel with Ubuntu and Ubuntu has its kernel optimized for new computers.

Minino is easy to use too, it has a lot of facilities for newbies (and for experts) users, that is not present in Lubuntu, Puppy or Damnsmall by default.

Minino is easy to install and really fast, and the most of hardware configuration is automatic like most of distributions.

It's opensource and has long support, like Debian and share its repository :-)

And it has a good support too.

Minino in action:
