As someone relatively casual/new to Linux who's lived in Windows most of his life, LXLE is super simple and has basically everything you would need for general usage without being bloated at all. It all works out of the box and needs little to no configuration unless you like being very personalized, which LXDE allows for. The only hitch I had was iffy wifi drivers in the 32 bit revised 12.04, and it was easily fixed with backports drivers after a short internet search. Also the default theme and wallpapers are fantastic compared to other distros and Lubuntu. Aesthetically pleasing all around.
