Change is good but changing everything isn't always great. Same is true for aging computers and their operating systems. Support is sometimes lost too quickly with a 6 month core release cycle. Graphics & Audio cards and chipsets get dropped along with other miscellaneous functions with programs or drivers that just go missing. We all like having updated software we certainly don't like down time or loss of features and capabilities.

I believe most aging hardware just needs the right system on it, and lets face it, it helps keep a couple bucks in your pocket if you can squeeze a few more years out of your current system; without sacrificing, performance, capability, usability and of course aesthetics.

  • This is an excellent Linux distribution - whether you are installing on old hardware or a new PC. I've installed this on three PCs: - Sony micro-PC VGN-UX180P with a 60GB SSD and 512MB RAM - Asus X205TA laptop with 32GB SSD and 2GB RAM - Acer Aspire-One Netbook with 120GB SSD and 2GB RAM With each of these, the installation was simple, except for the Asus, which is notorious for installing anything but Windows 10. LXLE has enough features for the novice, but for certain things, you'll want to add programs. I like the XFCE4 desktop environment, so I added that as a replacement for the LXDE desktop. Each computer runs as expected. I use each for a different task, although the Acer Aspire-One is the backup to the backup. The Sony VGN-UX180P was a test to see if I could get it running on that PC. I really like it on the Asus X205TA. It's fast. It doesn't spy on me, like Windows 10 does, and it handles all of my tasks, which run from Web browsing to writing to light duty audio recording/editing. I also had this installed on an older desktop PC running an Athlon III processor with 8GB RAM. Ran excellently on this PC, until I retired it. Running Manjaro on the new box - sorry.

  • comes with some nmice look but too many "console" features, and dont work in olders hardware, so nonsense to use it! due modern hardware work with all other linuxes! so much console programs.. for a hacker its good but hackers dont need "eye candy stupids thins"

  • I reviewed the Beta on You Tube and am flabbergasted, never has my flabber been so. A brilliant OS, it may come with a bundle of Software, but it does not feel heavy. It runs very quickly a must have OS for those wanting an OS to get on with everyday computer related tasks, outstanding

  • Excellent operating system for my needs. Installed on a ssd in a Compaq Core2 Quad 2.66GHz and viewed on a 40inch lcd. Handles Wine and vm's quite well. Will not install on some later Windows machines due to secure boot.

  • Best distro to bring new life to an old HP mini Netbook! All driver worked upon install. That was a first for some of the Netbook distros out there. Very satisfied with what I see with your hard work on this project. I now have a "new" fast mini with a new modern OS. I would highly recommend folks to take a test drive of this flavor. You will not be disappointed with what you find!
