Re: Lubuntu v. LXDE
1. The primary difference between ANY distro is the package selection and
desktop environment and yes that is where the primary difference between
lubuntu and ubuntu resides.
2. Yes you can install any environment( *box) you like.
3. I have never looked at the contents of the metapackage/core packages you
were asking about so i would assume you would have to dig further for that
Lubuntu aims to use a tremendously less amount of resources while still
retaining stability and energy saving. So to say it is "just package
differences" is a bit underestimating the abilities of the distro.
