PCLXDE Released!

Post by DixieDancer »

It rocks! Check the newest LXDE distro from PCLinuxOS! It's flawless, elegant, light, and speedy. The best implementation of LXDE I have seen yet.

Since LXDE will run on slower systems, perhaps they should have included a kernel that would boot up with a 586, then the user could install a more streamlined kernel afterwards.

I tested it on an i586 before its release. It worked fine.

It would not boot up on a K6-2 CPU. The LXDE Blog post on this, also referenced this fact.

I'm hoping Lubuntu will be officially recognized by Canonical in time for Ubuntu 10.04's release next year.

I see. :roll: Your point was not so much what we at PCLinuxOS did, but rather a knock and a plug for lubuntu.

I'm not knocking any one distro. I feel that most of the distros should include a default kernel with the image, that will install on the widest available range of systems (at least a 586-based CPU), then if the user wants to install a kernel more optimized for their specific CPU, they can certainly do that.

Not every Linux user is a Kernel compiling user. And not everyone wants to be. I certainly dont want to.

How many new Ubuntu users you expect to run Lubuntu (picked since its your distro of choice), decide its too slow and compile a new kernel? Nope, I expect they will go 'Linux is too slow' or 'Lubuntu is too slow' or 'LXDE is too slow' and move to a different distro. Hey Maybe they will try PCLXDE and say 'Wow. Look at how zippy it is'

If people want to run a distro on older hardware, there are already distros for that. Puppy anyone?
