Hi Federico,

Thank you very much for testing the OBI and several versions of Lubuntu
tarballs (so also Lubuntu). I hope that our work will be useful for many
current and future users.

There will be a pause until I can upload a new version of the OBI, but I
want to do it as soon as possible.

Best regards
