Lubuntu 18.10 Cosmic Cuttlefish (LXQt) screenshots

Lubuntu 18.10 Cosmic Cuttlefish is the first release of Lubuntu with LXQt. LXQt is a lightweight desktop build around the Qt framework. It can be considered as a blend of LXDE and Razor-Qt projects. Despite the lack of experience with LXQt, Lubuntu team has done an excellent working in making Lubuntu Cosmic Cuttlefish a great experience.

With the increased memory usage, it is no longer a lightweight distribution, instead a full featured desktop operating system.
