This section discusses both the standard installs and those required for computers with low memory (RAM), old chipsets (i586) and low disk-space (netbooks). Both Lubuntu and Ubuntu share two major important things: same Core System and same Repositories.
Lubuntu and Ubuntu belong to the same family and talking about each as totally different two systems is not correct since they have some things in common.
In terms of it’s prime purpose (a SSH client) 96*22 characters is the size of a konsole screen with the default (medium) font size when the window is maximised, that is 5% more characters than the standard terminal size of 80*25 but the smaller number of lines is a problem.
When using the small font I can get 129*29 which I find quite comfortable to read (it would be impossible for me to read withut glasses – which means having almost average vision for someone in their 30’s).
It does mean that it is prepared and developed for low-specification computers.When running Debian I can get 130*32 with the same font due to smaller window controls, but I’ll write more about converting to Debian in another post.Note that while the OS that ships with the Linux based Eee PC machines is based on Debian, it is heavily customised and has some notable differences from a typical Debian install.However, you are still free to use any application available in Ubuntu’s repositories, as long as your computer can run it.For those of you who are feeling that your computer is not working anymore with Windows 7 because, say, it is getting slower, here is a chart comparing Lubuntu’s starting applications and the most used softwares in Windows 7: Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet chat.
