Who would decide what app is right for Lubuntu? That's completely relative
to your specs machine.
On my old laptop (a 11 years old pentium 3) i've never found an app that
doesn't "run well" under Lubuntu... except of course apps REALLY HEAVY, but
that ones run just the same on any system. What I like very much about
Lubuntu is that it runs everything i throw at it, without complains :)
