    L to X

    I started with Lubuntu then went to Xubuntu. Was just wondering if there was anything that surpasses it. I am somewhat doubtful though. Xubuntu is el supremo to me.

    I prefer Lubuntu over Xubuntu, however both lxde and xfce are nice and lightweight. I generally prefer to install desktop environments directly on Ubuntu though so I don't jipped on the support cycle length of LTS releases.

    so if i installed ubuntu i could use the lxde desktop and it would be the same or close to xubuntu. meaning it would get rid of unity

    Re: L to X

    Yes you can, but doing that won't remove unity. You'll just have the option to choose which desktop environment you want when you login to your computer.
    Also, I don't recommend install the lxde or xfce desktop environment on top of a normal ubuntu install. LXDE and XFCE looks ugly when you do that.

    I prefer Xubuntu on low end systems because I think it much easier to use than Lubuntu plus it has some decent eye candy. On capable computers, I prefer Linux Mint with Cinnamon 2.0

    You may want to try Bodhi Linux, say on a USB flash drive. It's based on Ubuntu and uses Enlightenment window manager. Apparently it's very low resource hungry (128 Mb of RAM is the minimal required amount of RAM one needs for that distribution) and it's candy on the eyes.
