Really enjoying Linux Lite. I have been using it for about a year now and first installed it, because I was looking for an easy system that would work well for an elderly friend. I liked Linux Lite so much that I kept it and I have also installed it on 4 friends computers, and all of them have had a very good experience with it.

I have been a Linux user for more than 10 years, and my first really successful system was Debian. I moved to Linux not long after Windows XP arrived and I found it was too much of a resource hog on my Windows ME vintage computer that I bought in Jan 2001. Thanks to various Linux systems that computer was in regular use until only a couple of months ago, but I have finally pensioned it off because the Power button is now so worn that it is difficult to start! My current computer is about 6 years old and I was using Archlinux as my primary system until falling in love with Linux Lite!

I find Virtual Box an invaluable tool. When helping friends with sick Windows computers I would run Windows XP (my legit paid for copy!) in Virtual Box to help me think of solutions. I run the 64 bit version of Linux Lite, but I also run a 32 bit install of Archlinux in Virtual Box so that I can use a "problem" glaze software programme that needs some 32 bit libraries that Ubuntu don't have any more.

I also use Wine for Il2 Sturmovik 1946 (a wonderful flight sim), and have wine happily running a 32 bit environment for this game. Very clever of wine to be able to do that on a 64 bit system I think!

I am really impressed with the usability of Linux Lite. I like it that Libreoffice, Wine, and Gimp are kept up to date. Xfce is also really nicely presented by this distro. Some wrongly claim that this is simply a rebranded xubuntu, but Linux Lite works so much better for me, and I like the default selection of applications better too.

Sincere Thanks to all of you who make Linux Lite possible.

Hello!

Welcome to Linux Lite. I'm happy that you use it, like it, and, most importantly, share it.

I'm working on a Windows 8.1 computer right now that I'm trying to get the people who own it to switch over to Linux Lite. They've spent a bill ($100) for me to clean it twice in the last 6 months. Sooner or later, they'll get the message...

Many Thanks for the kind welcome messages, all much appreciated! I was amused to read that N4RPS was working on a Windows 8.1 computer.., I had to help someone with a Windows 7 computer recently that had almost ground to a halt (it had so much stuff running on it that it was using 1100 MB of RAM just to get a desktop!). Needless to say, Linux Lite is a Refreshing alternative!
