Lubuntu vs Mint LXDE vs Quelitu

Has anyone professionally tested Lubuntu vs Mint LXDE and Quelitu with respect to RAM usage.

They are all distros using LXDE. It would be nice to have hard numbers in terms of speed.

lbrty deserves credit for his work here

Why not ask him to include the new Que litu distro and post it here?

Which kernel does it use?

LOL, have never heard about Quelitu and had just a look at their website. They promise twice the speed as Windows. I wouldn't ever use a distro that advertises itself with such a generic statement without any proof.

Excellent comparison thread above

Thanks for the link above. It is a great comparison of lightweight systems. I have just asked them to add Quelitu (in a reply). I am not sure if it will work. It is always useful for other people to ask also. Please do so.

Tobi: That is not exactly objective. A lot of the distros in the comparison thread do not have any supporting evidence either. Some of them have barely anything on their website.

It is so easy and fun to test with the ISO using VMware or VirtualBox. Give it a try.
