Review: LXLE 16.04.01 Desktop


LXLE is an easy-to-use, lightweight desktop Linux distribution based on Lubuntu; an Ubuntu re-spin using the LXDE desktop environment, it is aimed at reviving or extending the life of ageing computers. It follows the same LTS schedule as Ubuntu to ensure stability, as well as hardware and software support.

The current release, LXLE 16.04.1 "Eclectica" was published July, 2016, and when you look at the installed set of software, 'eclectica' is an apt description of this Lubuntu re-spin.
