I just bought this little Win10 underpowered (but ruggedized) laptop. I am going to put Lubuntu on it and I bet it'll run like a scalded ape.

I actually wound up spending just a few buck more and got the same model with a 1.86 GHz Intel Celeron quad-core. Had to tweak the bios a bit to get it to install but it runs great. I am a Lubuntu believer. I actually have another little Gateway netbook with a single-core AMD Sempron processor (circa 2011 or so) and even that runs just fine with a basic Lubuntu install.

Here's the machine I put it on, by the way: https://goo.gl/62phoI

About this community

The objective of the Lubuntu project is to create a variant of Ubuntu that is lighter, less resource hungry and more energy-efficient by using lightweight applications and LXDE, The Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment, as its default GUI. Lubuntu is targeted at PC and laptop users running on low-spec hardware that, in most cases, just don't have enough resources for all the bells and whistles of the "full-featured" mainstream distributions. Members of the team take care of LXDE and other packages that are part of Lubuntu. Lubuntu received official recognition as a formal member of the Ubuntu family, commencing with Lubuntu 11.10.

¿Cuánto tardaremos en ver en acción a Lubuntu LXQt? El reloj se ha puesto en marcha, pero queda mucho camino por recorrer.

I successfully updated my Lubuntu 16.04.1 LTS PowerPC to 16.10 Yakkety Yak PowerPC on my USB flash drive today. The reason is, that the Lubuntu developers are looking for testers for the PowerPC platform. I'd like to help them.

Hey +Christian Zigotzky , thanks for your interest in helping us out! :)

I would highly recommend subscribing to the lubuntu-users and/or the lubuntu-devel mailing list to receive any information and join in on the discussions when PowerPC comes up. Here are the links to the two mailing lists' info pages: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/lubuntu-users , https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/lubuntu-devel

Sure, but this is 2 year old system! And long term support for ubuntu flavours is only 3 years, so there's only one year left? Not very "long term" I guess?

I helped a friend update his computer from windows XP to Lubunt. Works brilliantly. We connected a Cannon LiDE 210 scanner to it and it also worked great. In the last couple of weeks when he tries to scan something it makes this strange noise, and then he gets this error message. "Failed to start scanner:Error during device I/O." Anybody have a clue what may be the problem? the version of Lubuntu is 16.04.

I am not sure what this video should show. htop is known for not being accurate but more like an indicator form ram usage.
Though this test has nothing to do with real experience of the desktops as what happens if I open up some applications on Cinnamon or even open up the calendar or whatever menu it provides. Does the memory usage grow ? Does it grow more rapidly then the usage when I perform similiar tasks on Unity or LXDE or whatever DE ?
Don't get me wrong but the video seems to me that the author doesn't get a thing about memory management on linux.

Too sad that I see such comparisons even more often. and they are mostly useless.

So, umm..
yup, i have an ASUS X401U with 2GB RAM (but the system info just display 1.5GB) and AMD E2 procie with Radoen HD. I used to ran windows 7 ultimate 32bit when i was in high school (i hijacked it haha. but now i'm a good guy) and it ran smooth in my machine. Today I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 64bit but it seems laggy. It seems heavy in my machine, although i'm not doing any tweak. I'm trying to find an OS which could run flawlessly but powerful. So, i come here for a "consultation". How about Lubuntu 16.04 for my machine? or another version of Lubuntu? which one should i install?
Thank you :)

Followed the instructions on lubuntu.net for the minimal install. Installed Ubuntu Server then updated to Lubuntu Desktop. Thank you for helping me bring a 14 year old system back to life!
Lubuntu is a fast and lightweight operating system. The core of the system is based on Linux and Ubuntu. Lubuntu uses the minimal desktop LXDE, and a selection of light applications. We focus on speed and energy-efficiency. Because of this, Lubuntu has very low hardware requirements.

Hi, as you will know lubuntu is moving to Qt, also ubntu wiki system is looking to use a new WIKI system. It is a chance to vote on an important issue. I'm the proposer so my vote is not public. Even if you vote '0' it is important that you guys and gals can vote and make an input to lubuntu.
