    Here's the lists of what packages get installed with each one

    lubuntu-desktop

    lxde

    openbox

    BTW can you also tell me about other ubuntu variants , so i can choose from then the most appropriate.

    And does these light weight environments have compiz etc. eye candies that I CAN run ? (though not a necessity for me)

    is lubuntu = light ubuntu ?
    I think it is best to try. Either download the iso files or install the desktop environments and run them yourself

    Lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE and it is light. Xubuntu is medium light and a little more fancy. I guess it is possible to install compiz, but I think very few people run it with Lubuntu and Xubuntu. It is better to choose a distro that comes with it.

    Those Compiz effects that you ask about are now discontinued. You still have Wobbly Windows and other effects on 12.04 but you have to install Compiz Configuration Settings Manager and as previous mentioned you need a graphic adapter that can handle those effects. But they are not available from 12.10 onwards. There are not enough developers to maintain those Compiz effects.

    Regards.

    Most effects (wobbly windows in particular) are still in 13.04 daily build and 12.10 (with Unity)
