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.

Yes it is a bit old news since Lubuntu has been around for about a year or so.

I for one installed Debian "Lenny" from a net-install disk and installed Xorg plus LXDE, on a old Pentium II compatible with only 64 MiB EDO-RAM. Of course this isn't a speed demon but hey it works :-)

Thanks for your information on amiwm. Sounds Amigaish. Will give it a try.

The minimal system requirements for Lubuntu are 128 MiB RAM.
