The 'Posh' version of LXLE has been readied and tested since it's last release candidate and in the subsequent days of the update to Seamonkey 2.40, which is a core component of the overall desktop experience provided by the operating system; ensuring performance and compatibility with the suite update was critical before official release.

During this wait, small polish to the browser and overall user interface was applied, essientially smoothing out any rough edges of the new 'Posh Paradigm' introduced in this release. Posh is expected to provide not only a familiar yet dynamic low resource LXDE desktop but also a layout easily mimicked by LXQT if a version is ever officially offered. The goal was just simply to get as many options and features showcased and or utilized while keeping the resources low and without the overall look being too gaudy.

And hence, the acronym LXLE from Lubuntu eXtra Life Extension. However, in 2014 with Lubuntu itself releasing an LTS version, I wanted to check how LXLE can entice users to continue using it over Lubuntu. As Ronnie Whisler's release notes states, it is time for the distro to evolve: On 14th June, 2014, LXLE released it's 64-bit spin, LXLE 14.04. There is no 32-bit spin yet. Anyway, coming back to the topic, I downloaded the 64-bit ISO, about 1.5 GB in size. System Used for Testing LXLE Asus K55VM laptop with 2.3 Ghz 3rd Gen. Installation Installation is stock Ubuntu and it is a step by step user-friendly process which took about 10 minutes for me. Score for Installation: 10/10 Hardware Recognition Everything on my laptop worked as expected including WIFI, LAN, touch pad, screen resolution, sound card (sound was very good on the Altec Lansing speakers), etc.
