This has been my main distro for a couple years. It is specifically geared towards adding life to older machines with low resources. Because of this, the default programs are chosen specifically to fit this use case. My guess is that many people will want to change several of these for their preferred programs, assuming they function on the machine they are trying to use.
I personally have found that these Lubuntu respin distros have less bugs than Lubuntu does. I have this on my main PC and laptop. Other than having to change some programs out for my preferences, it has worked great! I might not continue using it if the software choices keep moving in the current direction, but since I already have this LTS set up the way I like it, I probably will stick with it for quite some time.
i keep on trying versions of Linux. They often don't do much. Usually i can get online with a live CD, though.
Lxle beat all of them for interesting quotes & news items on the search page! For this alone I give it topmost marks, it stylish and well-featured and most everything else works well too!
