I'm curious about this download page, as with many Ubuntu things it is a little confusing.  

 

Why is there two  "Desktop image" Entries?

Thanks, pcpunk

What do you mean two Desktop Image Entries? I don't see where you are talking about.

There are three Titles/Categories on that page, two are "Desktop images" and the last is "Alternate install image"  Also with Sub Categories like: 64-bit PC (AMD64) desktop image, but it is just repeated as far as I can tell.

I see, and remember now, it says: "This type of image is what most people will want to use." in the first.

 

The second one includes this download: "64-bit Mac (AMD64) desktop image"

 

But still don't see the difference, so will choose the first when I download.

Oh I see. Maybe each one is a slightly different image... just a guess I am really not sure other than that. There are some slight differences, the second group adds full 64 bit image for Mac computers. The first one is just for Mac (PowerPC) computers.

Ahh, so simple but so confusing.  Can't believe I missed that.  I clicked download to investigate, looked but missed it, my bad - Thanks guys!  This is why I've been running/testing 14.04, somehow that is what I downloaded a while back and didn't even know it.  

 

Lubuntu looks very nice for introducing people to Linux with an Old, Low Powered pc!  People that we know an't going to use Puppy.  And, looking into the AutomaticSecurityUpdates to make it fool proof.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutomaticSecurityUpdates

 

A few weeks ago, installed Mint Xfce to a neighbors hp nc6220 laptop.  It will be better for him than Lubuntu I think, and he has a Windows 7 machine that is a mess, so if he needs a Linux install on that I might put Xfce on that also if he so desires.  This way he will be able to use the same OS quite easily, important because he is very disabled and can't use his hands very well.  The expandable Menu worked well for this, because it allowed plenty of room for Bigger Icons.  Also: Large Panel, Slow Touch Pad and Mouse Settings.  It was quite simple to set him up like this and would have done more... but that is his backup pc, and don't know how much he will even use it.
