The solution to bandwidth issues in my opinion is NOT to make something like, for example, Open Office, a part of the seed for Lubuntu spin and install, but rather something that can be placed on a CD, if a full size CD media is put together and burned, and optionally installed then without

I see no reason Lubuntu for Karmic could not be called a beta or preview of Lubuntu or similar. In respect to qt, the toolkit itself is not that large. One problem is matching qt themes (fonts, colors, controls) and preferences with gtk. If we have default settings that match, then I see no

Ultimately I think mplayer is a problem, at least from the perspective of being an official variant, and especially with respect to codecs. That being said, I am also aware many will choose to install mplayer if it's not in the default install, as I am aware many use medibuntu repos. Leszek

Ubuntu flavors are not LTS in the same way as Ubuntu itself. LTS I think has a specific meaning that implies with it Canonical paid support as being valid for those who have service contracts for the same period, and there is no Canonical paid support for Lubuntu or other community spins.

I actually was not suggesting there should be such a remix. I was suggesting however that one could potentially do this with mini-iso install by selecting them explicitly at install time if we have lxde desktop as a task in mini-iso. And yes, one could do a server install and add lxde/lubuntu

I have personally come to love exaile. But this more had to do with Rhythmbox having many additional gnome dependencies, where exaile does not. On the other hand neither is truly lightweight. On 11/15/2010 02:13 PM, Julien Lavergne wrote: Le lundi 15 novembre 2010 à 09:43 -0300, Jean-Pierre
