I cannot say enough about how impressed I am with this system. I have used every version of LL since 2.6 and watched as LL progressed toward its goals. No Linux distribution achieves keeping a new user out of the CLI more successfully than Linux Lite 5. As far as I am concerned this in itself makes it by far the most new user friendly Linux system available today for new users coming from Windows. In the office, MS has had a stranglehold for years. Newly hired workers spent hours in classes learning how to use MS software but never received any real instruction on how to administer an MS system. Most new users coming from Windows are of that ilk, and Linux Lite provides them with the easiest potential transition from Windows to a superior Linux product. Simple touches matter to Windows refugees, and thoughtfully selected desktop software like Lite Tweaks and Lite Updates are of inestimable value to them. I am a long time Debian user and probably always will be as long as development continues, but I always recommend and install Linux Lite for Linux beginners. It truly is a beautifully simple and functional system that they always seem to intuitively find their way in.

Well, you can burn it on a flash drive and run it live for a test drive, without installing (you can do it with all linux distros- that's the beauty of linux).

It's Ubuntu based- meaning, all of the Ubuntu depositories will be available to you (all the tools, so if you are looking for a "video editor" you will have MANY options to choose Kodi nox from).

One of my favorite things about Linux Lite is the naming of applications after their function. A newbie wouldn't know, for example, that Thunar is a file manager, nor would they think of "Places" as an application for managing files. So Linux Lite calls it "File Manager."

During COVID I was able to help many families that were forced to home school and who could not afford to buy a computer for the on-line schooling, by putting Linux Lite on their older existing Windows® machines and taking them one single time through starting, updating, adding drivers, and customizing their desktop to suit their own preferences. The Welcome Screen, which offers step-by-step, point-and-click simplicity for maintaining the OS (along with tweaks and all the cool tools) is a huge advantage for newbies.

That new Lite Tweak that purges systemd logs is a very big deal! Perhaps inspired by a thread here on the Forums about it, it's really great to see attention paid to the "little things" that can cause problems down the road. It's yet another example of the creativity and imagination that goes into constantly improving this magnificent little distro. Linux Lite absolutely sings on my modest little Dell Latitude.

Coincidently, I helped someone this weekend on an MS machine with a profile from scratch.
Most of the information given was how to NOT activate a bunch useless apps and "call-home", erm, "features".
When more than half the training time goes to bypass the "defaults"... That not right! ;)

I'll toss a plug...

Setting up my Full Circle system that had LL2.8 still on it when I pulled it off the shelf, will now be a print server (LOL what I'm calling it)...
Code: [Select]
LL5.4 64 bit Dell Optiplex 160 (Thin) - Atom 230 1.6Ghz - 4GB-SiS 771/671 PCIE VGA

LL5.4 is running GREAT just a good as 2.8 if not better. GREAT OS..

And sometime old dogs need to be taught new tricks - I pooched it setting up VNC (to many fat fingers in the way)...
But 2nd time around - yup reloaded the OS - only takes minutes and I took my advice - make a backup  :55:

Then I followed, ok I copy and pasted from the Help Manual for setting up VNC (I used vi vs. mousepad)  AND in minutes BINGO..  :58:


 :57: GREAT OS - GREAT DOCUMENTATION!!! GREAT FOLKS on the forums :54: :54: :54:
LL 4.8 UEFI 64 bit ASUS E402W - AMD E2 (Quad) 1.5Ghz  - 4GB - AMD Mullins Radeon R2
LL 5.4 UEFI 64 bit Test UEFI Kangaroo (Mobile Desktop) - Atom X5-Z8500 1.44Ghz - 2GB - Intel HD Graphics
LL 4.8 64 bit HP 6005- AMD Phenom II X2 - 8GB - AMD/ATI RS880 (HD4200)
LL 3.8 32 bit Dell Inspiron Mini - Atom N270 1.6Ghz - 1GB - Intel Mobile 945GSE Express  -- Shelved
BACK LL5.4 64 bit Dell Optiplex 160 (Thin) - Atom 230 1.6Ghz - 4GB-SiS 771/671 PCIE VGA - Print Server
Running Linux Lite since LL2.2

I too am more impressed with LL 5.4 than Linux Mint 20.10 ! I used to use 20.10 but could not stand the CPU usage! LL 5.4 is perfect for my early 2006 iMac. Thanks to @Jerry for the hard work and dedication!  :045:

I've helped several old folks as myself make the transition to Linux with Linux Lite and the Help Manual is a wealth of how to information which a lot of distros don't have.
Linux Lite 5.4 (64bit) 2006 HP Pavilion d4650y / Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 processor / Nvidia GeForce 7300 LE / 4.0 GB DDR2 Memory.

Linux Lite 5.0 (64bit) 2007 Intel DG33BU / Intel Pentium Dual Core E2220 processor / Intel 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics / 4.0 GB DDR2 Memory.
