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.

Someone seems to have forgotten to check if this already existed: http://www.xubuntu.org/

Also the hardware requirements are practically the same, so this is pretty pointless. You could probably just install the alternate desktop this uses from xubuntu too.

In my humble experience Lubuntu preforms a lot better then Xubuntu on older computers.

It is a rather long article to read about just another distro though. So can hardly blaming him for not reading it all and just mention his observation.
