The Fedora LXDE spin is meant to be a lightweight but yet complete desktop based on LXDE, the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment.


Detailed Description

LXDE is a modern but lightweight desktop including a panel, desktop icons and a file manager together with a collection of lightweight applications for every day needs. For more information about LXDE please visit the LXDE wiki page .
