I decided to try Lubuntu after my problem with wireless on Lenovo u165.

I did not know my netbook is so fast :)! Great performance.

However I miss some things from Nautilus. I searched but did not find anywhere help how to add "Permissions" column in Detailed List View. Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately pcmanfm does not support this feature. Strangely, you had this ability in v0.5.x of pcmanfm - but this feature has been removed in subsequent versions...

XFCE and LXDE share many components - they can be interchangeable.

For example - you could use thunar instead of pcmanfm as your file-manager

enter image description here

As you can see - you can configure thunar with additional columns such as permissions.
