  • Linux Lite: 3.0 32bit

  • CPU: Athlon XP 2500+ 1.8Ghz

  • MEMORY: 1Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: none (unsupported Nvidia MX440)
Hello all! Been using Linuxes for 6 years. Just installed LinuxLite 3.0 on an ancient Athlon XP 2500+ 1.8GHz desktop, 1GB ram, Broadcom BCM4306 wifi card for which I had to download the b43 driver using a wired connexion, and a NVIDIA MX 440 video card which unfortunately is long ago not supported by Linux. Even on such a disadvantaged system, Lite runs amazingly well. I am much impressed with it and will definitely continue to use it to bring some comfortable life to old machines. I've tried other lightweight distros, which were especially light in the user-friendliness area. I'm much more of a user and not so much a tinkerer, though I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty inside a computer (and some of the machines I've opened have been really dirty!)
Anyhow, just a shout out of "Hello!" to all the fellow Lite-users and a big "Thank You!" to the development team for making such a great and humanly usable distro. I can actually run stuff right the first time and it gives me a huge amount of configurability without having to get too involved in the finer tweaking details. See y'all around!  8)
