Hello, and welcome!

After trying out a number of 'lightweight' distros, I'm also running Linux Lite on an old Compaq laptop or two (Evo 600c, Presario 2570us). The Evo has a P3-1GHz CPU; the Presario, a P4-2.4GHz.

Both of them only have 512 MB RAM, yet LL still performs satisfactorily. It beats just having 'em sitting around corroding and gathering dust!

Hi folks, .. I'm glad to find this forum. I'm a complete newbie to Linux. I just installed Ubuntu for a friend of mine on their laptop to provide them with a needed OS and I became aware of Linux Lite just today and am strongly considering changing my friends OS to Lite to make it more user friendly for them.  I have an old backup PC that is running WinXP and I am strongly considering installing Linux Lite on that also.  .... I'll be around.
