Hello from Indiana

(1/1)

Bromax2:
Fairly new to Linux; had some experience with Ubuntu in 2010. I'm looking for a new system for a couple of XPs. I was impressed with Spatry's 1.0.8 review and plan to go with that. Max

Teddy:
Welcome to the Linux Lite community! Hope you enjoy your Linux Lite experience. Linux Lite has the same roots as Ubuntu, just with a lighter weight desktop environment (XFCE) to ensure compatibility with older Windows XP machines.

N4RPS:
Hello, and welcome!

Not only is Linux Lite itself both smaller and faster, but at right around 700MB, the ISO is smaller as well. One 'XP replacement' distro I was considering prior to my discovering LL was not only over 3 GB (it had several desktop environments and window manager options bundled in), but the MD5 checksum was also incorrect - despite my downloading it several times.

The DL was probably OK, but if you can't get a valid checksum to appear out of something, why bother with it in the first place?
