Have an older PC? Try the new Ubuntu Linux-based LXLE

Filed under
Linux

Linux fans may already be familiar with Lubuntu, a lightweight Ubuntu derivative that uses the LXDE desktop environment.

LXLE, which is short for “Lubuntu Extra Life Extension,” is actually based on Lubuntu 12.04, but it adds many extra features. First and foremost, LXLE is designed “to try to remain as light as possible while providing an incredibly rich environment of programs, features, and aesthetics,” the project team explains.

Among the new features offered in LXLE are the “Greybird” theme, beautiful wallpapers, menu and window shadows, and the Conky system monitor. An AeroSnap-like feature, meanwhile, aims to make managing multiple windows easier.
