i agree with c david rigby, in that maybe we can have a barebone system, and
instead of having installers in the install process, maybe have some meta
packages in the repo's where a user can download the 'full multimedia desktop'
or the 'professional office tools'

I think lubuntu should not meant for geeks only. It should appeal to the
mass just like ubuntu is for.
As for applications, we should not think too much about the disk space, as
disk space is not very critical less than cpu and ram nowadays, but it's
good to keep it below 2 GB after
Good point ed,
we are forgetting our requirements, and getting head of ourselves.
so now that we are mostly agreed on being small and lightweight, what will be
the minimum and recommended specs?

On another note, I think Synaptic should appear is the launcher next

to find it in
I would say LXDE is lighter than Xfce, the LXDE developers seem to think so.
I think 64mb Minimum is enough.

Good to see the sudden spike in mailing list activity. I definitely need time
to follow the threads.
For those unaware, we have had 3 IRC meetings to discuss the goals and
applications of Lubuntu. The logs are at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/IRC%20Meetings. The objective of
I just went through the list if apps, Thats a lot of stuff...
Personally, I think it should be lighter than this, but I guess thats
what I get for missing the IRC meeting :)
Will we have a chance to vote on these things? or do the IRC meetings
denote final say?

I too have the same opinion and in the same situation as Glen. I have missed
out on the meetings, since only being involved in Lubuntu since yesterday. I
have looked at the applications list and there is too many, Lubuntu could
end up too heavy. This is one of the reasons I sent my first email off
