I'm currently using LXDE, both on my Lubuntu 20.04 production system, 
and on my i386 (32-bit) Debian 'Buster' test systems, and it works fine 
for me.  Things in the menu are sometimes in different places, but you 
get used to it.

I prefer LXDE because of its more varied customization options, and for 
being more similar to what I'm used to using.
