Lubuntu 16.10 Alpha 1 Officially Released with LXDE and Linux Kernel 4.4 LTS

Being the first Alpha, you shouldn’t expect to see any major changes, as the Lubuntu 16.10 Alpha 1 operating system ships with same Linux 4.4 LTS kernel as Lubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus). Additionally, it looks like Lubuntu 16.10 Alpha 1 is still using LXDE (Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment), as the Lubuntu development team said that the LXQt desktop environment is still in development at this time.
