The Lightweight X11 Display Environment (LXDE) is an X11-based window system that is designed to use fewer resources than Gnome, making it popular on systems with limited resources. It is supported on all NVIDIA® Jetson™ platforms, and is the default window system on Jetson Nano 2G.
Using LXDE instead of Gnome may reduce boot time, response time, memory consumption, and CPU utilization.
