Interesting question, but it's some kind asking about the differences bewteen Ubuntu and Gnome itslef. Not only the community is behind the environment.
Think in Lubuntu as an harmonic implementation of the LXDE environment over the Ubuntu repositories with a lot of added values, like a better integration components (dedicated applets), better oriented applications (with the handy way of having the best performance and the minimum installation size), the artwork (that makes the working day after day easy with your computer), the little (and most invisible) customizations here and there (login, session, panels, desktop, file manager, etc). And as you commented, you have a great community supporting this. But true, you can always install a minimal Ubuntu (or Debian) core and start installing app after app until your computer becomes usable. We're doing that job for you. And I'm sure that others, coders specially, would give you more reasons than these explained by me and my own unknowledge of the Linux systems. Thank you for your interest. -- Go to rafaellaguna.com Go to Lubuntu.net
