Why many distros have abandoned lxde or changed for lxqt?

Post by kmiller10 »

Today I wanted to install sparky linux lxde edition but realized that it won't be supported anymore after the current version. Looking for other distro with lxde, lubuntu changed it for lxqt, linux mint abandoned it. Is lxde not being updated?

Hi Miller, I don't think lxde is updated. I have been using the old one till now.

This simply isn't true. Please look at the first link in my signature.

Both Debian and Fedora offer their distros with the LXDE desktop.
