Lubuntu 14.04 LTS image with VMware Tools
Ubuntu LTS 14.04 is out and here we have Trusty Tahr with the LXDE desktop aka Lubuntu. Some years of Ubuntu long term support (LTS) are combined with already installed VMware Tools. Enjoy and compare it to our original Ubuntu 14.04 VMware image.
Lubuntu uses the LXDE desktop, which has a hierarchical start menu and a task bar. Moreover, it is fast, especially compared to the default Ubuntu with the Unity desktop running virtualized. Depending on the system, the 3d acceleration may not work and then Ubuntu Trusty Tahr gets terribly slow, almost lame. Lubuntu is different as it doesn't rely on 3d effects and functions. It also requires less memory than the fat standard Ubuntu. One can actually use this virtual machine on hardware constrained hosts!
Preinstalled apps: Firefox, Transmission, Gnumeric, Abiword, Sylpheed, Simple Scan, Pidgin, mtpaint, Audacious, Osmo, MPlayer and more tools like the GCC compiler.
