Siraj has posted a nice video of the Nokia N900 running Ubuntu 9.04 Mobile with LXDE on top over at the Maemo Area.

Julian Lavergne posted some ideas to get involved into lubuntu on the mailing list of the project which are helpful for anyone who would like to contribute to the lubuntu project. I am adding a few ideas here.
== Improve the Documentation ==
== Participate to the LXDE project ==
This is the most efficient way to contribute to Lubuntu. If you want a functionality, translate a package etc … you should directly work with LXDE: http://lxde.org
== Create an artwork for Lubuntu ==
We don’t have an original artwork, and it’s an important goal for Lucid. Some works began on the LXDE forum, but there is a lots to do to create a complete set of artwork. Currently, it could be nice to have:
IMPORTANT NOTE : We didn’t have currently decide the colors of the artwork. We should discuss and decide this on the next IRC meeting. But you can create some mockups to add them to the discussion 🙂
== Triage bugs on Launchpad ==
We need to manage bug reports for many packages (mostly, the LXDE core packages).
See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/HowToTriage/ for an overview of the triaging on Ubuntu.
The current packages and bugs are here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/~lubuntu-packaging/+packagebugs
Most important to know is:
== Fix bugs / Develop features ==
If you want to work on a bug, you should affect it to you so people know you are working on it. If you want to implement a feature, or working on a patch, you should open a bug on Launchpad, so people can eventually help you. I’ll try to add a TODO list for packagers who want to help but want some mentoring or ideas.
== Testing ==
We may have some ISO to test near the Alpha 1 of Lucid, it’s a good occasion to test if it’s working, and report bugs. You don’t need to know how to code for this, just use Lubuntu and report bugs/complain about it. You can also install a command line Lucid system in VirtualBox and install lubuntu-desktop package by “sudo apt-get install –no-install-recommends lubuntu-desktop”. Another way is to test a pristine lxde session by installing the lxde package, and see if no Lubuntu specific patch cause problems in a standart LXDE session. To report bug, do ubuntu-bugs the_name_of_the_package_affected. If you don’t know, use ubuntu-bug lubuntu-meta, we’ll triage it for you 🙂 Testing (and reporting problems) is critical, because developers can only try to fix problems if there are reported.

Deviceguru and Desktoplinux.com reviewed the new Ubuntulite Edition which is build with LXDE.
The community-run Ubuntulite project aims to extend the useful life of aging, under-resourced hardware, as might be found in schools or nonprofit organizations. Accordingly, instead of using a high end, video-hungry desktop environment, such as GNOME or KDE, this parsimonious OS incorporates the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment (LXDE), a platform being honed for use on nettops (aka mini notebook PCs) and MIDs (mobile Internet devices). LXDE provides “moderate” performance on systems with Pentium 2 processors clocked as slow as 266MHz and equipped with as little as 192MB of RAM,… (Rick Lehrbaum, http://www.deviceguru.com/2008/08/26/gettin…)
Henry Kignman writes about LXDE:
UbuntuLite’s featured desktop environment is LXDE, a GTK+ 2 based software collection that first emerged in late 2006, when two Taiwanese Linux distributions, B2D and the Ubuntu-based PUD GNU/Linux, adopted an early version. More recently, LXDE was catapulted into the spotlight in the latest “gOS 3 Gadget” release, which traded Enlightenment E17 for LXDE. (Henry Kignman, http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS4275692353.html)
