LXDE does what I want - single click, easy to add desktop icons etc. The rest of the distribution, being lightweight, doesn't have a thousand features/apps I don't want. Synaptic allows me to easily add anything I personally want. Thanks Stephen!

It is indeed a very nice and well thought out collection of packages :) I'm a happy UberStudent Lightweight Edition user too on an old crappy computer (Intel Pentium 4, 1GB RAM, 32MB Graphics 8-) ).
So, me too: "Thanks"

Cool. :ugeek:

I have to agree that LXDE has come a long way.

@David Baum - I'm curious. How do the desktop effects (System Tools > Desktop Effects) fare on your machine?

Ah I just saw your question, sorry.
The old system (Intel Pentium 4, 1GB RAM, 32MB Graphics) ran really smoothly :!: , no delay or something.

Now I'm having an even less powerful system (yep, others may upgrade, I do downgrade :lol: ): AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2400+ 1,9 GHz, 993 MB RAM and it is running great, too. But I turned off all effects I have to admit. It is struggling when 2 or more programs are running at same time, but that is probably because the machine has no dualcore.
The lightweight edition is indeed lightweight :)

OK, I love responsiveness. I love single clicking on the desktop. So I have officially moved to the lightweight edition of UberStudent and now I can say, I love UberStudent LXDE!

The speed is, well, very quick, and I'm much happier than with the MATE version, even though I didn't really mind it all that much. I just feel the need...the need for speed. Like Stephen, the Gnome 3 and Unity environments and the like seem to me like another layer away from the machine: we need a GUI, but in the beginning was the commandline.

And I like the effects. I enabled MOST, and Compton is doing a great job with my machine. I built it myself about two years ago, and even though it has the resources to run the really big gunboats like Fedora with KDE 4.x, why would I? I mean, with a fast machine a light environment enables you to fly. And without the headaches caused by the flashing icons of e17! :lol:

Probably related to the reasons I have a Ford Focus and not a Nissan Armada...speed, lightness, parking in the big city, and not least of all, the price of gasoline. Coincidence? I think not.
