I am proud to announce the immediate release of LXCE 1.0!

LXCE 1.0 is a special customized remaster of Lubuntu 10.04 LTS. This means that LXCE 1.0 will be supported with software and security updates until April 2013!

LXCE is the successor to XXCE Linux. LXCE features all the multimedia goodness and the web apps from XXCE.

Features include:

  • All software and security updates to November 28, 2011
  • All multimedia codecs from ubuntu-restricted-extras and xubuntu-restricted-extras
  • libdvdcss2, w32codecs, lame, faac, faad, and flac
  • Google Chrome replaces Chromium
  • Thunderbird replaces Sylpheed
  • xchat removed
  • Skype
  • Downloader for X
  • GIMP
  • Ristretto
  • Classic console emulators SNES9X, Stella, VisualBoyAdvance, GFCEUX, and GENS/GS; NOTE: No game ROMS or BIOS files included.
  • Brasero
  • Sound Juicer
  • Rhythmbox – including Shoutcast plugin
  • Ubuntu One, including the Ubuntu One Music Store plugin for Rhythmbox

And surprisingly, all this goodness fits in just 683 MB! Yes, LXCE 1.0 can be burned to a CD and used with older desktops and laptops which have a CD-ROM drive but no DVD drive!

Because of issues with Megaupload, I am hosting LXCE 1.0 on Wupload. If the Megaupload issues are resolved, I will upload to Megaupload and edit this post to add a Megaupload link.

I will not be doing versions of LXCE based on Lubuntu 10.10 or Lubuntu 11.04. I plan on working on LXCE 2.0 when Lubuntu 12.04 LTS comes out; it will be supported for 5 years. In the meantime, I may do a version based on Lubuntu 11.10 as LXCE 1.5.
