After using LL for a long time, I got to know MX Linux and I doubt that I will use Linux Lite again. In MX linux, I have everything a newbie needs. In addition to a fast system, in MX I find a system with many applications that Lite never found, I am really very comfortable and satisfied with MX Linux.
Thank you Linux Lite for your work that you enjoy for quite some time. Successes and the best so that Lite continues to grow.  8)

I was speaking more of the general look and feel. It's quite subjective I know. ;)
16.04 was icky... 18.04 Xubuntu is o.k.. for me...

From my first trial of the new Xubuntu, it's still a "naked" distro but are leaning even more to the likes of Linux Lite and Linux Mint.
Guess Linux Lite is on the right path. ;)

Yes, I also normally let some time pass after a new release is out, before installing it. I am pleased to see that this should not be a problem with LL. I am hopeful that LL 4.0 will, as you say, work well straight away. I have a laptop which I use for testing so I will just install there first to see how it all goes. I can see why it is necessary, but it will be a fresh new installation and not an upgrade. That is always more work, but I should be used to that after using Linux for 19 years now. Roll on June.

To be fair to the Xubuntu developers, as a community-based distro, they did have an issue with not enough people testing the 18.04 beta release in order to get adequate 'bug fix' feedback, which I suppose compounded the already underlining issues inherent with the Ubuntu 18.04 release itself.

Here is the Xubuntu 18.04 beta release announcement -

https://xubuntu.org/news/testing-for-xubuntu/

I'm sure Sean Davis and the rest of his team will improve things rapidly, which I think is already happening.

My rule of thumb is - try to allow a couple of months for the developers to shake out the bugs of any new Linux release - although I wouldn't include LL in this regard, which always seems to work perfectly right off the bat due to Jerry's dedication and the great community support it receives.

The new version of Linux Lite is due out soon. It is based on Ubuntu 18.04 and uses the Xfce desktop manager. I regularly read posts from https://www.dedoimedo.com/, which I find very informative. Recently he has been looking at Ubuntu 18.04 and various distros which are using it. The most recent is about the latest version of Xubuntu, which uses Xfce as the desktop manager. I think that people on this list would find his comments interesting. Especially the developers.

Just a suggestion.
