LXDE Based Lubuntu 10.10 published for download

LXDE Based Light weight faster operating system Lubuntu10.10 website logoLubuntu is a LXDE based Ubuntu Linux operating system. It is very lightweight operating system which runs really very fast on slower computers. The whole system also very easy to use for newer Linux user.

As the official said:
Lubuntu is actually not part of the Ubuntu family, and not build with the current Ubuntu infrastructure. This release is considered as a « stable beta », a result that could be a final and stable release if we was included in the Ubuntu family.
Lubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) was released with Ubuntu 10.10. It featured some new test, like:-
  • It based on the lightweight LXDE desktop environment.
  • Faster file manager 'Pcmanfm 0.9.7'. It is a real fast and lightweight files manager using gio/gvfs.
  • Included Lxdm, a lightweight GTK display manager.
  • And as a web browser Lubuntu developers added 'Chromium', the open-source version of Google Chrome.
Improvements since 10.04 were:
  • Some programs which were installed by default have been updated like Update-notifier, Xpad and Ace of penguins.
  • Some applications were removed. Parcellite is not maintained upstream, it is less useful since most of copy/paste bugs was gone with pcmanfm 0.9.X. Pyneighborhood was replaced by gvfs support of pcmanfm.
  • And major changes are: LXtask replace Xfce4-taskmanager for tasks monitoring, Evince is now used for reading PDF, ePDFview have some serious memory leaks.
I have just read a great news in LXDE.org website. LXDE Blog post said that Desktop icons of PCManFM becomes movable!. Now we can move icons in desktop from here to another place dragging with a mouse pointer. But I am not sure whether it is included in Lubuntu 10.10 or not. I did not download ISO file yet.
