Hi Phill, You're welcome! I think it's not your fault and I'm very happy to be a part of the team :).
Hi Jared, I agree with you too. Actually "sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends lubuntu-desktop" is the command I always use because I don't have time to remove the applications I don't use (like ace-of-penguins game, gnome-mplayer...). Hi all, I think we should give some explaintions in the wiki. If reader wants a full Lubuntu desktop, just use "sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop", if he/she wants a minimal desktop and then add new applications by him/herself, so just use "sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends lubuntu-desktop".
