Well, you don't have to remove the (Gnome) desktop, there's an option to just not install it. Please see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/DocumentationHelp/MinimalInstall for details. I believe that if you use Ubuntu alternate CD instead of mini.iso there's still an option to install a minimal system.

One difference (not so big IMHO) between Lubuntu CD install and minimal install is eth0 not being nm-managed after a minimal install. Maybe there is something else, not sure.

Regards!

It would be very nice if there were a 64-bit version of this soon instead of using the method of installing first ubuntu and then removing the desktop and installing lubuntu-desktop. Does this give us exactly the same solution as installing (32-bit) lubuntu with the exception, of course, of the fact that it is 64-bit?

Best,

Beautiful is writing same markup. Internet Explorer 9 supports
standards for HTML5, CSS3, SVG 1.1,  ECMAScript5, and DOM L2 & L3.
Spend less time writing and  rewriting code and more time creating great
experiences on the web. Be a part of the beta today.
