We have following distribution package : Choose Ubuntu type:

  1. server
  2. xfce
  3. lxde

Can you let me know what is the difference between them , and what is suitable of which sort of application.

    1. server - Headless image without desktop environment
    1. xfce - XFCE desktop environment
    1. lxde - LXDE desktop environment

For Edge, if you want to use the desktop environment, LXDE is recommended
