    Hello!
    I downloaded Lubuntu 10.04 and Mint 9 LXDE. I don't know what I should install on my pc: 1.6Ghz Sempron (amd64), 1GB RAM, Radeon 9250.
    Distro should be easy-use, quick and stable.
    If you know another LXDE-based distro, please post here and tell something.

    also like to add xfce distros are very fast as well if you click on office word on lxde and xfce 1st time its all most same or lxde little fast but on second time when you click after closed xfce open it on sec or so while lxde take same time

    xfce are pretty stable old and recommend you to atleast give it a try mint doesn't have 9 yet so you can try xubuntu 10.04 LTS its complete desktop and supported for 3 years

    and if you dont like it and still wanna use lxde then go for mint base

    Even with regular Ubuntu, turning off compiz and using Metacity makes it quite snappy.

    true linux for all

    but xubuntu rocks in speed because of xfce and if you remove all those unnecessary software and fronts of other language than you use ......like for example i dont use xchat totem exaile mozilla thunderbird remote desktop viewer .......etc

    its runs as fast as lxde and pretty much stable
