Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life. Glad to be here.  I've been using Linux Lite for quite a few weeks now, again, since I've used it in the past before. I'm on the XFCE flavor which I must say is my favorite desktop environment; really lightweight  and easy to use. I've used XFCE in almost any distro I've tried. I hope we can share experiences, tips, hows to, best practice advices. I'm not expert or whatsoever, but I'll try my best  ;D.
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

Welcome! You'll like it here! Like Steve mentioned, people on the forums are nice, they really act like human beings!
Except me, because I'm just a sentient entity roaming the Intertubes! ;)

I prefer XFCE too, since I am also new to Linux, the Whisker menu with it's program description is what sold it to me.
To be fair, I was also impressed by Moshka's eye candy from Bodhi Linux 4.1.0 which used about 100MB of RAM after booting up.
But, it's buggy, and not so user friendly. LLLL- Long Live Linux Lite

Cheers!

Alot of us have come here from other Linux distros that are supposedly "beginner-friendly" and "lightweight," but this just simply beats them all. 

n old axiom in Linux used to be that "speed is sacrificed for user-friendliness... You can have one or the other but not both."

Linux Lite breaks that old paradigm and proves you can indeed have simplicity, beginner-friendliness, and speed even on older hardware.  Welcome here!

Thanks! I agree wit you on Bodhi; very nice but quite buggy if you ask me. Haven't tried the Whisker menu so far to be honest, but since you've mentioned it now I will.  ;D

Thanks! I was on Debian, really like it I admit but many frustrating issues with graphics driver. So I tried Peppermint next which I liked too, especially the app to create usb bootable drives, really nice that one but it suddenly started to crash. I presume it was my fault, don't know exactly how but I'm certain I  screwed it up and here I am, well I should say "I'm back", since I used Lite 2.4, I think  ;D. But yeah you're right, Linux Lite rocks! CPU load and temps are really low, not to mention ram usage.  ;)

The Whisker menu is the default start Menu in Linux Lite, so you already tried and liked it ;).

Things I learned in school in geographical classes are old and dated, but isn't there three Americas? ;)
Could have changed though, like lots of countries names and even the number of planets in our solar system.

North-America, Central-America and South-America. Central-America still exists, but not according to different countries.

Some consider anything below Mexico South-America and some include Mexico inside Central-America.

Always found it funny that only U.S.A. citizens called themselves "Americans" ;)

At least we're all Earthlings... I think. Wonder if we have a name for being in the same Solar system, hum...
