Hi All,

I just had to state how frighteningly brilliant Linux Lite is!! Valtam has done a phenomenal and amazing job and it blows my mind the more I discover about it. The nuances and details are truly incredible and I am so thankful to have and be using this distro. It is now going to be my recommended distro for my customers and I hope to be able to assist the project in the future. Thank you for an amazing gift to the Linux community.

Thank you Joe. You mention the nuances, these are usually overlooked when putting together an operating system but in Linux Lite they are a strong focus. Of course thats just the operating system, we are also fortunate to have a generous group of people helping others with Support.

Just tested Linux Lite 2.0 with an old sistem: Sempron 2800+ rev D S754 (no C'n'Q) CPU/ASUS K8U-X motherboard/1.25 G of RAM/GeForce FX5200 AGP. Works out-of-the-box!! Flash-player plugin, sound, everything!! There are just a few Linux OS working Live and out-of-the-box with this pretty Linux-unfriendly PC. LL is one of them. It's a good job indeed.

With W7HP, I have three 10GB ext4 Linux partitions. Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon is a keeper on one. On the other two I've tried zillions of distros. Some are okay, some blow up in my face. But as of today, I believe Linux Lite is keeper number two.

Just a few quirks:

No way to choose a printer, as far as I can tell.
I set my desktop to dark gray, but if I go to settings>desktop, it flips back to black.
With Mediterranean appearances, I can't get my desktop icons into the lower right corner.
With the Raleigh appearance I can, but with with a 'balloon' around the text.

Update:

I found the printer menu; it found my Brother HL-2140.

Desktop, look at my screenshot make sure your settings are the same, the solid colour stays after a reboot:



I also have icons in the bottom right hand corner no problem:

Due to an ongoing printing problem, I wound up reformatting that partition and reinstalling Lite... this time it's behaving better, desktop-wise.
