you can try making a bootable USB with Ubuntu mini-ISO, install a
commandline system then apt-get install lubuntu-desktop.
You can also try upgrading your existing 10.10 install.

No it can not. Tests done on alpha3 show that the system requires at least
2000 MB (decimal M) just to install with almost no free space left. Too

I always have trouble finding some vital information regarding Lubuntu.
Maybe it's just me, but it takes definitely more than a couple of
mouseclicks to find out, e.g., the status of latest testing iso, its
version, release date, download location, etc. Also, I've seen a link to IRC
I confirm it, 46 packages to update right after running an install with

Personally, I always think a well-structured and comprehensive text document
is ways better than a bright set of icons linked somewhere. IMHO the front
