Derek Dickerson: this distro is way to far out of date
FoxeoGames: Is that the Seinfeld poofy pirate shirt?

MasterControl90: still based on ubuntu, still too hardware hungry for old PCs
StockingAndBlossem: btw is linux lite pae enabled by default?
ImTheDaveman: Awesome review monsieur Spatry! I like the fact its all crammed into a CD
Commodorefan64: I've tried this distro, and it's decent enough, but as others have stated
I've also ran into issues with video drivers, so I just use LinuxMint XFCE
which seems to do a bit better on video drivers for the time being. AMD
APU's however still seem to suck no matter what distro I use.
FORMETOKNOWONLY: My suggestion to people if you are not very tech savvy to think twice
before using this for dual boot purposes.
IvCastilla: Very good Spatry,
I have tested Linux MINT 16 in my old laptop and works very fast and stable.
I have my Linux Lite CD ready for replace Windows XP next crash.
I will make you some donation during next week, thank you.
Raul Girao: Great video Spatry! Thanks a lot!! Be safe !!
Derek Dickerson: mullets and rock bands are out fyi I looked at the date of this video..
other than that good video.
Steven Spivey: how do u change linux lite to look like windows 7
FORMETOKNOWONLY: Please, HELP!!!! I am a newbie to linux and loaded Linux Light and
attempted to the dual boot installation with XP.
Only problem is when I boot the machine it says there are resolution
problems and goes straight to Linux.
I am really wishing I hadn't decided to load Linux Lite 1.0.08
I have no idea how to get back into XP. Please. I need help.
icenesINC: Yes, but who still uses Windows XP?
Steven Spivey: I went back to windows cuz I cant find a distro that fit my needs maybe you
cold help I love to theme and do some gaming browse the web go on Facebook
play Facebook games and my laptop is amd e 300 apu with Radeon graphics
dual core 2 gb of ram 300 gb hdd
Alpha Lion: I hear that this linux lite is fast. Would it be ideal for gaming?
Frans Voskuilen: I used LL 1.06 for a year with no problems at all, but since 1.08 I can not
get my Nvidia driver (173.14.35) loaded without a crash... (No GUI
So I switched to Xubuntu 12.04... running fine now!
Schlomo Silverstein: Great video, Spatry! I might give this distro a go, I've been looking for a
good one for my older laptop I have lying around.
Alex K: I'll be honest, what is the point of another Xfce ubuntu respin? Just
download Xubuntu 12.04. Same result but better aesthetics in my opinion of
Richard LeBlanc: Have U tried to use extended monitors on linux lite you know where u move
mouse from 1 monitor to another and looks like it jumped from laptop
monitor to desktop monitor i asked someome on another of our buddies who
does reviews and a viewer told me to use RandR but when i did i couldnt get
it to work as my laptop goes now i used both monitors show same thing any
videos on my problem be appreciated i am fairly new to linux been using it
a while but not steady
Peter Snizek: @Neocasco: Thanks for the hints! will try :-)
Brandon Griffin: I'm diggin the vids I'm rocking zorin os and let me tell you it's fast
sleek and sexy plus bitwig studio is coming out with a release date and a
price next week so producers and band jammers look out for it. Linux is
finally getting supported. Keep up the good work spatry
Krzysztof Blazejewicz: so far it is very well design os. hope they only use lts.
Anormalus: Does Dekorator run on this distribution ?
fahad mahbub: Can u plz give me your XFCE tutorial video link, I can`t find that.
Dennis Conners: Thanks. I am rudimentary at best. I am a 67 year old point and click guy. I
am totally pissed at windows 8. 7 was ok. I am wondering if going to Linux
Lite would be much of a hassle. Do you have a tutorial on it? If I get it I
will definitely need some help learning and adapting. Thanks again!
Constantin Harper: The BEST Replacement For Windows XP! Manjaro Linux or zorin-os-6.4-core-32
daniel germán rodríguez fernández: Okey that is great..! I will dwonload it! Thanks. Daniel.
NativePrairie WolfTwo: What about adding mySQL (if its not included in the distro) and mono?
I use software that requires both mySQL and mono to run- ideally the newer
mono, seems Ubuntu 12.04 is stuck at mono 2.10 and they warn not to update
mono because it might break things Ubuntu depends on, not a good thing!
DarkPhex24: Your hair got longer and there is a metal track running in the background.
Did you became a metalhead? I mean, Linux and metal fits perfectly...
baxajaun2300: Another good choice to replace XP on my brother's netbook and a friend's
desktop. Trying to do that before support expires on their machines. I was
considering Linux Mint XFCE since I have LM 16 Mate dual booted with
Windows 7 on my desktop.
Oscar Wolfzrat: great review Spatry
Kyle Norris: Your video quality has dropped a bit since I first started watching your
stuff was wondering why
Josh White: Exclent! Can't wait to try it. Does it use the. Deb package manager? That
would be great as I am familiar with spt-get commands
crthell: Linux Lite fanboyism strikes again. I mean this with no disrespect to
Spatry, as he's a heck of a guy and my favorite Linux reviewer. However,
there's very few things that separate Linux Lite from the other Ubuntu
based distros out there. It's all been done before. Even the name is
generic...Linux Lite. It doesn't suck at all, but it doesn't seem to offer
much to the table either (besides the new user scripts, which are superb.)
While I'm not a fan of the limiting design aesthetic of Elementary OS, it
was able to unify quite a few different elements into one cohesive OS that
fits together. This is just generic XFCE *buntu.
Can somebody prove me wrong, please? I'd love to feel the enthusiasm for
MrLoggfreak: do you know a good alternative to sony vegas for linux?
Peter Snizek: I recently installed 1.0.6 on an eight years old Acer notebook replacing
XP. By the way, the only distro out of 5 that I tried where everything
worked seamlessly, without any hickups during and after installation. The
OS is so fast, that one could get the impression of sitting in front of a
brand new computer. However, like with Mint I dont like the fact that there
is no version upgrade procedure. This is a big no go which actually made me
leave Mint 13 (in favour of the better looking Elementary OS) on my
daughter's computer. Also Lite OS lacks a software center. Well yeah one
could use aptitude or the package manager... But this notebook is actually
used by my mom who is in her late sixties. She is running Ubuntu with Unity
on her other, newer laptop and therefore used to the software center. From
my point of view Lite OS is a solid alternative for old computers to extend
their lifespan one more time before getting scrapped. But it is probably
not the most user friendly distro in the area of system maintenance and
specifically software installation. Me personally I dont like the XPish
start (Menu) button because it is a kind of old fashioned and boring. Also,
why should I do 3 mouse clicks to start an app (XFCE) if it can be done
with 1 (Unity)? Leaving XP is also a great opportunity to look into modern,
more sophisticated GUI concepts :-)
Dennis Conners: This is for my desktop.
Kyle Norris: I installed this distribution on my brothers old xp laptop with 1gb of ram
and runs fine
Dennis Conners: Does this work with the 64 bit system?
NegiMudkip: LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE
NoireMk2: I enjoyed like when I tried it but I had a lot of issues installing my
video card drivers for my 7950
Labradorstarcraft: I will give linux a try, i want to wait for Steam OS and try both Ubuntu +
Steam OS or Linux Mint + Steam OS
