See what people from around the world are saying about Linux Lite here.


"A delightful, tasteful distro that makes Linux feel like a breath of fresh air. Linux Lite is a distro that finds favour wherever it’s installed, but for some odd reason is often left to one side, or forgotten completely when the talk turns to fresh, lightweight and manageable desktops. We’ve no idea why, but suffice to say that the new version 2.0 of the distro is an exceptionally good example of what can be achieved when the right combinations of desktop, tools, programs and ideas come together."
