Lubuntu is a lightweight, community edition of Ubuntu running the LXDE desktop which is often regarded as a good operating system for older computers. The project is shifting its focus slightly and working to provide a distribution featuring the LXQt desktop and modern technologies. A post on the project's website lists the upcoming changes. "This means that Lubuntu will stay light, and for users with old systems, should still be usable. But we will no longer provide minimum system requirements and we will no longer primarily focus on older hardware. This is a large endeavor as you might expect, and we're still working on catching up to other distributions in terms of feature parity, but with 18.10 being the first LXQt-only release and 20.04 being the first LTS LXQt-only release, we are confident that Lubuntu will be ready for whatever the future holds."
