Hello people reading this,
You may have already known me as the developer of LPinguy. That is the proof to show you that I can do things good enough and worth your help.
First, here are some pictures and a video of the spin of Lubuntu 12.04 I am making.http://i.imgur.com/S4uVK.jpgAbout
The design focuses on many Ubuntu-liked features such as Appmenu or Globalmenu, Window buttons, Maximus to remove titles, familiar indicators, chameleon notification, xcompmgr, conky, synapse and of course, the ease customizing and doing stuff.
The core of this spin is LXDE, making it lighter than many distros out there including Ubuntu.
The goal is to add more features to LXDE, or Lubuntu 12.04 in particular, to encourage Linux spirit in traditional desktop--light-weight, out of the box, and user-friendly. I have nothing against any other distros and I am just doing and sharing what I like.
At the time, the spin is being built. I'm willing to receive non-financial help such as ideas, how-tos, and comments. I am an amateur so any advice from you will count. If you want to join the project, to spend more time on it, send me a message. When the number of messages gets quite a few, I will send out an Alpha. Otherwise, I will only release the spin one time as Final version.
Added description on what I did to create the spin http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...29&postcount=5
