Lubuntu is lightweight , energy saving and faster operating system for low configured hardware. I personally like Lubuntu for its smooth behavior. Lubuntu is for fast and easier use. It is not resource hungry like other os. So you can use it for your old computer and netbooks. It include pcmanfm as file manager. LXDM for desktop management. Leafpad as default text editor (not word editor) and the default web browser is Chromium. As for office management a light word processor Abiword and light spreadsheet program Gnumeric (both compatible with Microsoft Office™ documents) are included with Lubuntu. Organize your life with Osmo. Evince reader for PDF files. This 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) version of Lubuntu will be supported until October 2015. Lubuntu will run normally on 256 MB physical RAM.

Using Xubuntu you will get free security updates for at least 18 months and three years support for the Long Term Support (LTS) version. It comes with the light-weight yet feature-rich Abiword for word-processing needs, and Gnumeric for creation and manipulation of spreadsheets. Both Gnumeric and Abiword are compatible with their respective popular file formats like doc, odt etc. From 12.04 it included a Dock panel on bottom of desktop. So applications can be find easily and smartly. Though official prefer 528 but I ensure you that Xubuntu need only 256 MB physical ram to run smoothly. Get more information from Home site. More suggestion about this distro can be found on many place like Ubuntu or Xubuntu blog.

  1. The main problem with Kubuntu (or the KDE Plasma desktop) is that Ubuntu Software Center doesn't work with it. Additionally, Muon - the KDE equivalent to Ubuntu Software Center - doesn't work either.

    Of course, for advanced users this doesn't matter since they will likely use the command line and apt-get or synaptic to install / remove software.

    You should add Ubuntu Studio to your list. Ubuntu Studio is customized to video / graphic and audio content creators.
