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.

Well, I think Lubuntu is quite a interesting distro for Windows converts. LXDE looks quite Win9x-ish. My Lover for example hates all those eye candy stuff on Win Vista/7, KDE etc..

Then I installed LXDE on Ubuntu on one of his laptops and he loved it.

There for IMO it's a good decision of Canonical supporting it as a official branch.
