That's very backwards. We build flavours against targets, not the
other way around.

Ubuntu/Unity flavour does not build/work on ac100, thus was dropped.

Lubuntu flavour always worked and stayed.

Note that we have Lubuntu flavour for i386, amd64, powerpc... and
Ubuntu/Unity flavour for all of those as well. Among many other

So your reasoning is very backwards =)

HUH?! it's *buntu community that builds all releases. And ac100 target
got added to Lubuntu with strong Lubuntu support and collaboration.

AC100 team on launchpad is more or less a hardware-specific
communication forum / mailinglist for users/developers who want to run
any *buntu on ac100.

If there were drivers available and ac100 had faster processor, the
quantal and up unity would have worked and still be released. Lubuntu
is best suited for ac100 due to it's low specs.
