I have always been a fan of LU but finally gave up on 14.04... Just too
buggy right now, if you have been following with the group emails or not
of the things I have been reporting.
Right now I have a full install of LU on the bottom, but I have XFCE
installed on top of it, since this is my day to day machine, I put up
with the quirks of LU for a couple weeks and finally gave up and put
Xubuntu on top of Lubuntu. Sure LU is still there, just got to log out
and on the log in screen click LU DESKTOP but in XFCE I hid all the LXDE
applications but a couple. I think the only one I didnt hide with
alacarte is the LXTASK I dont care for xubuntus I like how Lu's tells
you CPU usage and memory usage.
