They both use the Ubuntu core ~ Lubuntu is a little leaner/meaner and Cinnamon is full-fledged bells & whistles.

Personally, I like the Cinnamon edition. But I have other 'buntu spins on other devices ~ each has a purpose.

Have fun! Yeah

PS ~ You'll really like the updating (no infinity bullshit) and the freedom from all the virus software, etc..

Has anyone tried xubuntu yet? It's meant to be really lite.

Yes. It is skinned down (last I tried it) good for rigs with old/low resources.

I've run Linux Mint Cinnamon for a few years and I mostly like it. I'm not very technical and I have trouble getting a printer to work well with it. What's good about it is that when my computer craps out, I just get a cheap used one off ebay, insert my old HD, plug it in, it grunts, gasps and farts and my desktop comes up like magic. Try that on windows. If you just change your HD or something on windows, it gets all shitty with you, like I didn't say "mother may I". My current desktop is a $60 wonder with something something core and 8 gb of ram. Dell Small form factor. Works pretty good for 60 bucks.

Linux is the future.
Ubuntu is the future, today.

Puppy Linux is also another light weight distro that might be worth a look after what you were saying on the other thread! 1dunno1
Confucius say… Best way to make a long story short is to stop listening.

A little ditty myself and a friend composed.

I love Puppy but it doesn't seem to be receiving any maintenance effort.
