Thanks for the test.

 1) when i go to language settings, it asks me to install more packages. 
 when i agree, it downloads much stuff including openoffice packages...
It's a feature to add to language-selector.

 2) logged out of lubuntu DE and then in to lubuntu netbook DE. logged 
 out and tried to log back in to regular DE. was unable to click cursor 
 into username / password box
lxdm seems to lock sometimes, but I never mange to reproduce it. It may
also be relative to other applications like plymouth, which break lxdm
sometimes ago.

 3) tried to edit date/time settings - unlock button does nothing
Confirmed, but maybe not our fault. Did you test on a regular Ubuntu
Lucid ?

 4) install gave me pcmanfm 0.9 - is this correct?
Yes, it's pcmanfm2

 5) is mtpaint the finally chosen image editor? to my mind it's visually 
 very dated...
If you have another idea of a lightweight image editor, feel free to
propose. For now, I don't see any other candidate for this purpose.

 6) love the speed... :-)
Good :)

I know the default editor in Lubuntu is not user-friendly, and its
interface is really ugly, so I have another suggestion. Take a look at
this editor GNU Paint (gpaint), it's like MSPaint, but has a few image
effects. It has no dependencies at all, and it's easy to use (too much,
I think):

I must admit I’m at a complete loss understanding how mtpaint looks dated  
or ugly, especially when compared to gpaint.

 I think I've said this before, but is there any reason we couldn't give
 mono-paint a try?
 Its a clone, unfortunately its written in
 mono, but its still pretty damn good for its size..

Mono is a runtime/interpreter for CLI bytecode, not a language. You really mean
C#, but there's really nothing wrong with it being written in C#. The real
problem is that we are past FeatureFreeze and nobody has packaged it for
Debian/Ubuntu just yet, so it is not in the archives and will not be entering 

Kind regards,
