We received this reply via the email from Lubuntu Development lead Julien Lavergne: From: Julien Lavergne To: letters@fullcirclemagazine.org Hi, I'll would like to thank you for the talk about Lubuntu. It's nice to see people interesting in this project :-) I just would like to add some comments about this episode : About the need or not for another *buntu : There are already plenty of the *buntu flavor (Netbook editions, Studio, Mythbuntu, Edubuntu ...). Check the http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/ for a complete list :-) I don't think another one is a bad thing :-) About the Lubuntu / Xubuntu : Lubuntu was not created to be a replacement of Xubuntu, or to be better than any *buntu. 2 goals of Lubuntu are to : - Create a Ubuntu flavor based on the LXDE desktop. - Create a lightweight distribution using Ubuntu. The goal of Xubuntu is to be a full replacement of Ubuntu, using Xfce desktop. Lubuntu is a lightweight desktop, but not a full replacement. We focus on main features and performances. It's also difficult to compare Xubuntu and Lubuntu. Xubuntu have more manpower, more features, more integration in Ubuntu etc ... Xubuntu is also aware of the performance problem, I'm sure there are working on it, but it's harder when you have a bigger community. About the confusion because of too much choice : Please keep in mind that most users just use Ubuntu, not other flavors :-) In those cases, it's better to have more choices :-) Chrome is not included, it's Chromium, the open-source version :-) On Lubuntu derivated, as long as they mention they are based on Lubuntu, it's fine. If they can contribute patches back upstream, it's better :-) For example, Peppermint devs send me a patch for inclusion in Lubuntu, and I was happy to include it. Like this, all Lubuntu users and all derivated gained a fix, and Peppermint devs doesn't need to maintain this difference with us. Regards, Julien Lavergne
