As a BSD user since the 80's, Lubuntu was my first real venture into the Linux realm. Prior to that I had only toyed with Linux a few times for brief periods. This was pretty much at the same time I started this blog in 2012.
Lubuntu was the first distro I had ever given a true test drive to, and during my 'I know BSD, but I need to adapt that knowledge to a Linux' state. I had always known of Debian through reputation, but somehow chose Lubuntu first.
In the end, Debian is a far better choice, and it will be the only Linux covered here moving forward. All of the Lubuntu content here will be removed soon, so if you want to archive some of it, do it now. I am no longer going to promote, in any manner, an OS I wouldn't use myself any longer.
By next weekend, all the Lubuntu content here will be gone. As it should be.
Lubuntu, and all the different flavours of Ubuntu, are all built on a foundation of Debian; upon which they then add their own shitty, unstable, user friendly and bloated code.
This is not meant as an insult to Canonical, but fact is fact, and I no longer want anything to do with what they call an OS.
