I am guessing the mail server is playing hookie and not sending all the 
messages through or something, because Normally I hear back from someone 
and I know someone else had posted a week or two ago if their message 
had went though or not because no one ever answered their question.

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.
