Hi Adam,

I'll start testing Lubuntu 14.04.4 :-)

But there is one improvement, that I will suggest at once: Please
upgrade the Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator, usb-creator-gtk, to version
0.3.2 (recently developed by Marc Deslauriers). This version is tested
in Xenial Xerus and works well.

Best regards
