Hello Denis,

I recommend to have a read here:

You can clearly tell that we have mentioned already about Lubuntu can be
installed on newer hardware as well ;)
Keep in mind that Lubuntu, on the first place, is designed and targeting
old machines. Needless to say, in general, what will work for old machine
will also work on new specially we are talking Lubuntu which is the same as
Ubuntu (same core, same repositories) except the DE and the Default
Programs which are different.

However, thanks for your feedback :)
