I know from people giving me feed-back on the minimal installation
instructions that more people than you may think are totally reliant on
lubuntu to let them have an up to date system. In fact, they'd *love* to
have 256K RAM ;-)

I do know what you mean about some people thinking we are 'under selling'
lubuntu, a lot of that may be quite deliberate to keep the maddening hoards
from over whelming the small team while they get the various niggles sorted
;-) The general word on lubuntu is good, and it will get better. Slimline,
mean and keen - long may it remain that way. Let loonies like me put on LAMP
server's and GIMP on to it, they certainly are not required for the vast
majority of users.



 I don't think there are many people out there with 256K
