As I read it, it sounds like some users can't translate that into the answer to the question "will this work with my resource-limited machine?" > > *However, is there a reason why non-Lubuntu-approved apps are are > in the LUBUNTU Software Center?

Maybe I misunderstood the value of LSC but I thought of it as the catalog of Lubuntu-friendly apps. When you want to answer the question of "what's the lightweight package for [blank]?" that's where you go. If you don't care if it's lightweight or you don't get what you want in LSC, then you try Synaptic/apt/aptitude. Doesn't that make sense?
