== What is Lubuntu ? ==

Lubuntu is an Ubuntu derivated using the LXDE desktop. It's designed to
be a lightweight and easy-to-use desktop environment.

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.

== Features ==

 * Based on the lightweight LXDE desktop environment.
 * Pcmanfm 0.9.8, a fast and lightweight files manager using gio/gvfs.
 * Lxdm, a lightweight GTK display manager.
 * Chromium, the open-source version of Google Chrome.
 * ... and, of course, based on Ubuntu 11.04
