Ah, OK, fair enough. I had that on Android 2.2 myself.

I choose Arch for older hardware, because it's a lot more customisable, and allows me to take only drivers and programs I need, unlike Lubuntu, where everything is installed, including unnecessary drivers. Arch allows old systems to be as concise and get the maximum speed possible out of the system. Also Lubuntu is more of a hastle to swap the open box window manager out for fluxbox, if desired, which i often do do, depending on the system.

Fair enough - but this is not an option for people who aren't Linux
experts already, of course.
