    11.10: lubuntu or normal iso?

    Hello,
    I'm a long-time user of Ubuntu and recently I got an Asus EeePc 900a with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom and only 1 GB of RAM and 4GB of SSD space. I used to use the netbook remix before they combined all of the iso's into one, and now I use the LXDE interface. It's slightly faster, but I think it's not as fun to use. When 11.10 comes out, should I stick with lubuntu or will it be worth the decrease in speed (if any)? Also, any alternative suggestions would be nice.
    Thanks in advance,
    ethyn408

    Hi,
    I am no expert but I have read that if you would like to slim down ubuntu even more then installing Ubuntu Mini follwed by LXDE or XFCE would do the trick.

    HTH,

    One word, YES

    NO WAY Ubuntu 11.10 can be compared with Lubuntu 11.10 when it comes to speed. After all, it's your call
