I'm a newbe to linux and have been checking out different distro's for awhile now trying to find a version that I could understand how to use. Well I think I found it. Not only does it look good and work right out of the box, it's fairly easy for a 60+ year old newbe like myself to figure out how to use. This version has stuff in it that really helps a newbe like myself, like the mouse overs that tell a person what a program does (ex:cd/dvd burner, video player etc.). Most versions of linux don't have that and it's really helpful to a newbe. I often didn't keep linux on my system and really give it a chance partly for that reason. If I have to go on line to figure out what a program does before I try to use it, then I tend to get turned off of using it. So far I really like what I see and how it feels and think I may have found my new OS. Keep up the good work LXLE team and thanks for the chance of something better.

I've been secretly depressed for over a year ever since Ubuntu released Unity and Gnome 3 was released. All the "this makes sense" usability had went out the window and even though I had played with LXDE, XFCE, E17, and the bunch, I just couldn't get it to do EVERYTHING I wanted. But this does. I have the equivalent of an Aero snap, FAST USB read/write with PCManFM, a random wallpaper selector (not even sure any other disto has this), and a setup that mimics GNOME 2 in appearance. I dig this, I really do. Now...why doesn't this release just replace Lubuntu?! You have a superior aesthetic look and better suited to a wide range of desktop users. Just thought I'd send a quick note to say great job!

Kudos on LXLE - an impressive improvement on Lubuntu. Gets most everything right straight from the first reboot, from wireless to the correct time, with different desktops for different tastes. I understand LXLE is meant primarily as a holdover until Lubuntu has a fully supported LTS release, but I think this system easily stands on its own as a premium Ubuntu flavour. Keep up the good work!

i switch 'flavours' every couple of months but i think that lxle will be staying on my main box for longer than that. it's not an old machine (quad core - 8 gig of ram) but i like the simplicity and understated feel. it really does fly too.thanks for taking the time and effort to release it.

Nice Work! I've got a pretty new system with alot of bells and whistles.:) So wasn't needing this for basic functionality, just something simple and streamlined. This was it! Installed quite easily. ~tstc
