Default Mozillux

Been running this on my laptop for the past couple of days. A very good lubuntu spin in my opinion.

Definitely not a minimalist distro however, lots of stuff pre-installed and its about a 1.9 gig download. Like it a lot though

Thanks for the link - will try to take a look at this later.

Without a support forum however they are not likely to last long. Voyager (another excellent French effort) also has support issues and is likely to share the same fate.

You're welcome

Fair point about the forum thing. I'd say it's pretty 'noob' friendly though. Flash, Java etc are preinstalled as are many, many other things. Personally, any issues that I've encountered, I've solved by searching lubuntu related issues.

This is a fair point too and indeed most 'Buntu related things can be ironed out in other forums. The fact remains though that for a distro to be even moderately successful, folks need to identify with it and that means having a dedicated place where they can receive support and interact with other users. They also don't help their own cause much by posting this:

Why is there no forum ?
Right now we are too busy to maintain a forum. This kind of activities are highly demanding. We would like to let forum professionals manage communities so we can focus on programming.


Whilst this is no doubt a true statement on their part, and I'm not sure how they meant it to read, but to me it translates to "sorry guys, but we're more interested in ourselves than you".
