Linux Lite is a free operating system. It comes in 32bit and has pae support so if you have more than 4gb of ram, it will all be made available. There are no plans for a 64bit version.
By producing a simple to use Linux based Operating System, we hope that people will discover just how simple it can be to use a distro like Linux Lite.
This is a CFV (community feedback version) it is designed to facilitate feedback from Windows users and the wider linux community.
The final version will be released within the next month.

Copy the iso image to a 2gb or larger USB stick using Unetbootin. Unetbootin is available for Windows and in Linux through your existing distro repos, or you can download from here - http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
Or, you can burn the Linux Lite iso to a DVD with your preferred DVD burning software. Some options are available here for free DVD burning software - http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-cd-dvd-burning-software.htm
Alternatively, you can use the dd command: sudo dd if=linux-lite-1.0.4-cfv-32bit.iso of=/dev/sdx where 'x' is the letter of your usb stick.
In linux to find out the letter of your usb stick, open a terminal and type: df -h It is usually listed as 'media' or similar.
NB: Your CPU must support pae extensions, most modern computers do, if you're not sure search for the word 'pae' and your cpu in your favourite search engine.
