Lubuntu vs. Ubuntu
Lighter applications than the usual versions of Ubuntu are included. LXDE and LXQt are extremely light, and Lubuntu is considered a light-weight distribution.
Lubuntu releases up to 18.04 feature the LXDE desktop environment, and releases since 18.10 feature LXQt, along with an LXDE application set.
Lubuntu uses Openbox as its window manager.
The LXDE developers are putting their focus on a new project called LXQt, the result of a merge between RazorQT and a Qt port of LXDE. The Lubuntu team has expressed interest in supporting LXQt, and has replaced LXDE with LXQt in 18.10.
