Hi! :)
I started using it since 31-05-2022.
(In Romānia, seems to appear earlier than elsewhere.)
From "top to toes", worked wonderful, from the beginning! Thanks!
I even installed it on an external HDD, to test it before erasing the previous install (LL 5.8. ).
I even plan to install it on my wife's new laptop (now, runs LL 5.8 ), an ASUS-M415U (AMD Ryzen 7, 6 cores, 12 threads, 8 GB RAM + SSD).
I'll come back with news since there is a "clinch": the WiFi chipset requires a driver from AMD so a LAN-USB  adapter is required in order to install the driver.

Stars:
I enjoyed the update for Lite Tweaks and Lite Software.
I also noticed that I have the correct OS Version in "System Profiler..." (hardinfo)
Since installation, nothing required special assistance so I guess, "flawless" fits my case.
The average uptime, is 10 hours (maybe one hour, give or take). Never had trouble, so far, since installation.

Thanks a lot! :)

This is one of the most straightforward, clear, complete and easy-to-follow pages on an operating system and how to install it, if not the most, that I have ever come across. Thank you!

Going to give this OS a bash on an old Toshiba Satellite A-200 with 3GB RAM and which came loaded with (sick bags at the ready...) Windows Vista. This laptop served me for years as a social media coordinator, and has run anything from Puppy Linux to Zorin to Q4 Centaurus and Windows 7 and 10 (the latter which runs surprisingly well). Currently running a dual boot of Windows 10 and Linux Mint 20.1, so it will be interesting to see how Linux Lite compares.

Jerry:
Open a separate support thread for your gdebi issue. It will be related only to you, it's working perfectly normal here. Cheers.

Thanks Jerry, I did find this article myself later on, installed Grub Customizer, but it didn't work like it did in LL 5. I was able to change the boot order, but it did not pick up my background (PNG)image. I put it in both- boot/grub/themes and usr/share/backgrounds. Not sure what the right folder to put it...
I also tried Lightgdm settings, it didn't work either.
Gdebi: when I do update in terminal, it says two pkgs can be upgraded. So I do upgrade, then it says gdebi, gdebi-core held back. In Synaptic I try to reinstall them, it says fix broken pkgs first, then I get a "missing pendency" error. I'm not very good at these things, but it would be nice to have Gdebi.
Thank you for your reply!
