Lubuntu is the LXDE version of ubuntu, but the lubuntu page at distrowatch shows openbox as an option instead of lubuntu. Shouldn't that be called Oubuntu?...

    Yes, and I like it. I just wonder since KDE + Ubuntu = Kubuntu, XFCE + Ubuntu = xubuntu, LXDE + ubuntu = Lubuntu, why doesn't Openbox + Ubuntu = oubuntu? It would keep the naming scheme consistant. Puppy should be JWM + Ubuntu = Jubuntu, and I am sure others could think of other wm or de and ubuntu combinations.

    The default window manager for LXDE is Openbox, so LXDE on Ubuntu will come with Openbox by default unless the LXDE developers change to some other window manager.
