Re: Going to make base testing ISO


Hi all,

I have contributed Dave's list to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu, along with some of my personal suggestions and comments. I believe that we are looking for light applications with gtk as the primary dependency.

I am not extremely knowledgeable about the applications, so do point out if I have made an unsuitable suggestion. I am unfamiliar with the wiki Ubuntu uses, so I have no idea where to put the discussion. So I have put it as a bullet point under the relevant application.

I added a few application suggestions. Proimnent ones inclue a calculator and a cd burner software. 

Hope to see you guys in #lubuntu @freenode.
