  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit
Happy new year firstly to all.

I'm Orobas from the UK. I'm also a senior mod for another highly ranked linux operating system which i have been involved with since 2004 which sadly is on the verge of closing down due to the owner being awol with real life commitments. I've been using debian and ubuntu based linux systems on and off since 1993 where my first experience was with knoppix and since then, linux has always been there as a back up pc for when my windows or mac pc's go down. I like to keep 1 windows, 1 mac and 1 linux desktop on the go along with 1 windows and 1 linux laptop. I also use a raspberry pi with various arm linux versions.

Looking forward to working with you folks here on this forum

Welcome  :) 

Joining the LL community is a really cool start to the New Year  8)
I hope you enjoy your time here with this friendly and helpful community.
Also, I'm confident that your strong background in Linux will be invaluable.

2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M@2.4GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - LL 3.8 32-bit (64-bit too 'laggy')
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.6/Win8.1 dual-boot, LL works fine with kernel 4.15
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL4.6, works well with kernel 4.4; 4.15 doesn't work
