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).
The objective of the Lubuntu project is to create a variant of Ubuntu that is lighter, less resource hungry and more energy-efficient by using lightweight applications and LXDE, The Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment, as its default GUI.
Lubuntu is targeted at PC and laptop users running on low-spec hardware that, in most cases, just don't have enough resources for all the bells and whistles of the "full-featured" mainstream distributions.
Nonetheless, you can run any application available in the official repositories, as long as your hardware can bear with it.
To download Lubuntu and see the various options available head over to Get Lubuntu.
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.The screen is bright and clear, this is essential as the number of pixels per character is going to be low for any reasonable amount of text to be displayed on screen.The password that you set when you first use the machine also works for “su -” (in fact that is the only real use as I expect that almost everyone will choose the automatic login option).The display comprises a significant portion of the weight, if the screen is fully open (about 150 degrees) then it will tip over.Even when the screen is not as far open it will tip due to bumps if resting on your lap on a tram.
