Lubuntu 17.10 is a regular release of Lubuntu, an official community flavor of Ubuntu featuring lightweight LXDE desktop environment. Comparing to previous releases, Lubuntu 17.10 does not bring much changes on user experience. Under the hood it includes all updated packages and bug fixes from Ubuntu base release.

Despite of being a lightweight distribution, Lubuntu brings Mozilla Firefox as default browser. It is far ahead of other lightweight browsers

GNOME Software is also included in Lubuntu 17.10 as a graphical front end for application management. I did n't capture it's screenshot because it was not loading applications on start. It neither showed any error message :(.
