LXLE 16.04 “Eclectica” Distro Will Be Based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Beta Out Now

LXLE 16.04 Beta incorporates various MATE specific applications, which replace some of the GNOME ones that were available in LXLE 14.04.4, thus making the OS more lightweight, and there are a handful of apps from Linux Mint too. It’s a little bit late for a spring cleaning, but it looks like the LXLE developers have done a great job of streamlining the default applications and various core services, again, making the OS faster and less resource hungry.
