First LXQt-Based Lubuntu 17.10 Daily Builds Surface, Here’s What It Looks Like

The development cycle of the Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) operating system started two months ago when Canonical’s Adam Conrad gave the green light to all maintainers and developers involved in the project, and the first Alpha milestone is now approaching fast. Simon Quigley of the Lubuntu team took things very seriously for this cycle and published earlier what would appear to be the very first Live ISO images of Lubuntu Next 17.10 (Artful Aardvark), the umbrella under which the development of Lubuntu Linux built around the LXQt desktop environment takes place these days.
