Hello everbody!
Just installed LL on an old Toshiba L40 15G to give it a new life!
I'm a complete ingnorant in Linux OS, always used Windows as a normal user (no geek skills).

I'll read the forum around because I have a lot of questions...

Thank you.

Hi JesusLinux,

Welcome to Linux Lite and the community.

It's a very good start to have a browse around the Forum. An even better and concise introduction & start you'll have with the Help Manual, accessible either online or offline directly in your installed system.

If you get stuck, don't hesitate to ask here on the Forum.

All the best :)

Welcome to the LL forum  :) .

Confused? No problem.
There are many folk here who are knowledgeable, patient and friendly, and who will be more than happy to help straighten things out for you - you'll learn a lot too in the process.

Cheers
Mike
64bit OS (32-bit on Samsung netbook) installed in Legacy mode on MBR-formatted SSDs (except pi which uses a micro SDHC card):
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ [email protected] - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ [email protected] - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom [email protected] - LL 3.8 32-bit (64-bit too 'laggy')
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel [email protected] - LL4.6/Win8.1 dual-boot, LL works fine with kernel 4.15
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel [email protected] - LL4.6, works well with kernel 4.4; 4.15 doesn't work

Yeah, I had the same problem learning Spanish Tex/Mex slang being primarily a English American speaker.

Does the same job. Just goes about it different like.

You will get the hang of it. Like I did. Howdy and Welcome.
