Default Lubuntu: Finally, a Lightweight Ubuntu!

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.

This article details how Lubuntu differs from Ubuntu. It also compares Lubuntu to other lightweight Linuxes. It focuses on Lubuntu 10.04, which is based on Ubuntu's 10.04 Long Term Support release. (Lubuntu 10.10 is the latest release, with 11.04 due out at the end of April.) Sample screenshots follow the article.
