Description: "As promised, have the latest and the last release in the 2.8 series of Ultimate Edition. Ultimate Edition 2.8 'Lite' is dedicated to those with low system resources; it is also lightning-fast on machines that have the resources. There are no bells and whistles here, no office suite, no Compiz - just the pure essentials. It was built off Lubuntu 10.10, updated and upgraded, which is based on the LXDE desktop environment. Many applications were ripped from the operating system before I even started to build. This is the first time a light edition has been released from us; not that it has not been asked for by many for some time. Ultimate Edition 2.8 'Lite' will fit on a CD."
Keywords: Lubuntu-based LXDE Lite

Pros: Fast, lightweight, easy installation, small footprint.
Cons: Theme is a little rough but easy to change.

Installation was simple and close to the standard Ubuntu install. Has a minimal amount of packages but with synaptic and Ultamatix many more can be added for your needs. Great for older desktops and laptops and even faster on new hardware. Network, Wireless and Broadband are easy. Beginners may have a few problems but intermediate should find it a breeze. If you like fast without all the bloat, try it out.
I tested this on 3 differently configured desktops and 4 different laptops of varied age with no problems at all.
