    Great news! Especially now that Debian Lenny comes with LXDE, it's time for an LXDE Ubuntu, too.

    Can't you just start with the minimal Ubuntu install and install LXDE over top of that? That's what I do for Xfce (Xubuntu sucks).

    Yes you can, but I assume if it ever becomes an "official" Canonical project, it will have the human theme and other Ubuntu branding instead of the blue default LXDE appearance. And there should be a lubuntu-desktop package with LXDE, the themes, and a lightweight application suite. In other words, it will be heavier and browner than minimal install+LXDE.

    just as i use the debian lenny LXDE + openbox image i would of course also start using a ubuntu LXDE installer cd if there was one. so this is indeed very good news.

    I'd love it if something like this came to be - it'd certainly help out LXDE development, and maybe it'd even spur development on "smaller" apps to go with it.

    Are there any LXDE default distros out there that are up-to-date.

    I think the latest Knoppix is on LXDE by default. I wonder how Knoppix is doing though.
