  1. All the important distros bring lxqt by default, I understand that lxqt isn´t ready to be the default in 15.10 but at least if you have a ppa to install it, Why not put it in the official repo of Lubuntu like Unity 8 for testing purpose?
    A ppa can break the system and it´s used very little.

  2. Yes, some are brave enough to use an experimental LXQt environment. But not us, or Debian. And yes, we have a daily PPA with the LXQt components to test if want to, but it's at your risk, as you said, PPAs can turn your system very unstable and even unusable:

    That's why we don't activate it by default in the sources.

  3. Goodness, 16.10 for LXQt? I was all excited thinking it was coming in 15.10... I must have missed the news! I suppose I'll just have to enjoy anticipating it for a while longer ;-) Thank you for your continued work.

  5. That's the spirit of testing :) Please, let us know if you're happy with the system, and tell us any problem you could find on it. Thank you for downloading!

  6. And yes, 16.10 for a fully functional and stable LXQt desktop. Some distros are releasing LXQt out there, I tried them. And well, I better wait for the Lubuntu build. Trust me.
