New guy who's made the permanent switch.

Hi, I'm regularfella, aka Lance.

No more distro hopping for me. This is what I've been looking for. I've installed Linux Lite 2.0 on my Acer Aspire 1410. It has a Core 2 Solo and 3gb ram, 250gb hdd.

Everything worked out of the box. My favorite apps were a breeze to install and this distro runs great on this machine. The screen is broken so I've hooked it up to a 1600x900 monitor and even that was detected and ready to go out of the box. Now it serves as a desktop PC with my wireless mouse and keyboard combo.



I first installed the 32 bit version, but now I have the 64 bit version installed. For some reason the machine seems to run faster on x64.

Love the GUI, Love the simplicity. I'll be sticking with Linux Lite for a long time to come.

Welcome,

I also did some distro hopping, Fedora, CentOS, Mint, Puppy and was on Zorin for a couple of months.
Then I tried LL, and what swung it for me was actually the Forum, it was the participation and help
provided from other users and the active participation of the dev's.

Hello!

Welcome to Linux Liote!

Replacement screens cost a lot less now that they once did. A bill ($100) or less buys one, but will require a fair amount of disassembly to change. As far as disassembly goes, YouTube can help with that...
