I have moved up to Linux because of my continual dislike for Windows 10. Could fill a page here with all the issues I had since it's release.

I have always been interested in Linux, but never could find a distro that was easy for a noob and had windows like UI.

VERY Happy with Linux Lite !!

I'll do a lot of lurking and reading before asking questions. You Tube and web searches has been my best tools so far to help me adjust to the workings and getting things done in LL.

Thank you to those responsible for creating, and the continuous development of LL. My only contribution so far can be donating funds, which I did.

And a pre Thank you to those willing to share their knowledge and experience with other people here, and noobs like me!

James

Don't expect it to do all that windows can do (well like windows does...it can do most [except some gaming]), there is a steep learning curve, but if you stick with it you will get the hang of it

Don't give up...and keep plucking away at it and you will get it pretty quick...learn the command line and learn quick command and stuff like that
There is a TON of general GP knowledge out there...since LL is based off Ubuntu, and Ubuntu is based off Debian...if you hit a jam Google is your friend (just pay attention to "debian" flavored help and fixes
