then my husbands dad gave me a windows 7 PC, and then i grabbed that (at the time) free upgrade to windows 10 home, windows 10 was ok and all, but what a major head ache it was , soooooooo i went to Fry's and purchased a brand new PC, then turned my windows 7/10 pc into a LINUX LITE 3.6, ha ha , i was happy ever since ,  8) 8) .

then later i turned my brand now PC into a LINUX LITE 4.0 now 4.4 , now have had NO windows PC in the house for year or more , or give or take a few , i'm having a hot flash, still waking up hear on one cup of coffee, sorry folks, lol.

well thats my sleepy story hugs, i love linux...... hugs !  :-* :-* :-*  .

oh i for got something, i want to say thank you to the whole linux team for all their time and hard work and dedication to "Linux Lite", also on youtube i want to say thank you to "sneekylinux" , it was his encouragement, help and advice over  the course of time   that help me ditch windows all together ...... hugs every one .

Jerry is the 'creator of Linux Lite  Which is the most difficult part of everything especially creating an operating system.
After that huge task having the dedication and expertise to be the lead developer and the team of developers that
accomplish the end result of maintaining security updates, Bug fixes and other software problems.
To develop a 'stable OS is a huge accomplishment. The greater accomplishment is keeping the OS 'Stable.

My first linux distro was ubuntu 14.04 or 16.04, but it was too easy to use (no options to do my basic jobs like setting up encryption, modifying panels without terminal. Just aplications). I also noticed that it was unstable, but now I know that it felt unstable just because I ran it on broken computer. Linux lite is more complex. Easy to use but I can't for an example show almost anything (GUI) in one screenshot.

Mine was also Ubuntu (12.04) but I couldn't get the graphic card to work properly.  I saw a good review about LL2.2 and made the switch.  I had a Win7/LL dual-boot setup for a while 'till I made a mistake and deleted Windows while re-sizing partitions.  I don't miss it.

My ist Linux Distro was Debian Wheezy  and that was prior to Windows XP EOL in April of 2014 .
I used Debian Wheezy  for awhile and then migrated to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS  and from there I tried several other Linux Distros.
I find Linux Lite 2.2  I believe it was and tried it and liked it although still being new to Linux kept testing other Linux Distros.
Linux Distros I use are Linux Lite 3.6 / LMDE 3 Cindy / Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Bionic Beaver / antix 17.4.1 Helen Keller and these Linux Distros work well on my old outdated junk desktops.

I think the first distro I installed on bare metal must have being Mint Debian edition, around 2014.

I had installed Ubuntu on Virtualbox before that, and I also have used Gparted live-cd way before that.

The only thing I regret now, is that I waitet all the way until windows XP EOL before seriously switched to Linux. Wish I had done that before.
I won't let an old, but fully functional computer die just because some company tell me that they won't make no more security updates to their OS. Thanks Linux :)
