Excellent distribution, there are 2 versions, currently
-Runtu XFCE 18.04
-Runtu LITE 18.04.1 (LXDE)

Nice looking, fast, polished and minimal. Both verisions are on just 600-800 Mb iso (assembled with debootstrap) have all the necessary software like the latest Libreoffice 6, multimedia applications, Firefox 62, Gimp 2.10 and anything else a normal user would wish for. Great, simply great - an example of how good Ubuntu can be if taken closer attention by able and motivated devs perfecting the base given. English and Russian both supported!

My rating relates to Openbox/ LXDE version Runtu Lite 18.04.1:

Amazing distro... better than old Lubuntu before switching to LXQt.It is very fast, with nice themes preinstalled, no bloat, but all essentials there - it runs at some 260 Mb ram on my older i5-2Gen HP. And the ISO download is amazing ~600Mb.

P.S. I was actually looking for Runtu's standard XFCE version, but as it is still at 16.04.3 version (but same amazing (~600Mb iso (incl. LO, VLC, FF), ~330Mb ram, themes) I downloaded Lite LXDE version instead. Meanwhile waiting for new XFCE 18.04 but honestly, Lite is amazing as well. Recommend both.
