Derek Dickerson: this distro is way to far out of date
Christian Schmidt: Hey, I'm almost sold for this distribution but I have a few questions:
Can I start up my old WinXP partition in VirtualBox?
How much hard drive space is required for the default install?
A. Lawrence: Sadly IRC for Linux Lite is 'Lite' on help. I like LL and use it but new
Linux users should get used too using Google for problems.
MasterControl90: still based on ubuntu, still too hardware hungry for old PCs
FoxeoGames: Is that the Seinfeld poofy pirate shirt?
ImTheDaveman: Awesome review monsieur Spatry! I like the fact its all crammed into a CD
Kenny Ackerson: Lol people use linux on the desktop? lmfao.
DJ Never eNd: A few question:
1. Can I remove things from the menu, like the Steam homepage link and some
2. Is this operating system recommended for an Atom-based netbook with 1GB
of RAM, or is there a better XFCE alternative (I'm considering Zorin OS
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.
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.
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
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.
FORMETOKNOWONLY: My suggestion to people if you are not very tech savvy to think twice
before using this for dual boot purposes.
Steven Spivey: yes
Richard Blanton: Do you know of an easy way to upgrade from 1.0.6 version ... ? Would be
great to see a Vid on this subject - Thanks !!!
Alpha Lion: I hear that this linux lite is fast. Would it be ideal for gaming?
Pazma: Hi everyone, I'm looking for some help choosing a new OS. My laptop needs
new RAM so until I can get the money to fix that I'm forced to use my old
PC. It's pretty old and has an AMD Sempron Processor 3000+, 1.81GHz, and
512MB RAM, currently running Win XP. All I use it for is web browsing,
torrenting, listening to music and watching video files (up to 720p). I've
never used anything other than Windows XP and Windows 7 so I'm used to
their GUI. I'm semi-computer literate, I can usually identify and fix a
problem after some research online. I'm really keen to try Linux but don't
want to be bogged down with too much to learn. I don't care much about
customisation or how it looks so long as I can perform the tasks I usually
do with Windows, which are listed above. What would be the easiest
transition for me considering my very limited hardware? I'm very grateful
for any help I can get on this, there's so many distros out there and it
can be very confusing for a beginner.
Anormalus: Does Dekorator run on this distribution ?
J Scott Upton: I finally moved away from XFCE desktop because it uses too much memory.
LXDE desktop doesn't have as much eye candy but it is lighter and better
for old equipment. Lubuntu, Peppermint, and others use it.
javi ramirez: Helloo friends, I'm from Colombia and I have installed this great OS, but I
have too much problems about the wifi. My laptop, when i'm in the linux
lite session, doesn't find the wireless networks. My laptop is a COMPAQ
CQ40-621 , and the wl card is REALTEK RTL8101E/RTL8102E. Could somebody
help me?. Iḿ a begginer in the GNU/Linux OS... Thank u very much
marc1bb: WHY would anyone replace XP? It is better and and runs faster, and is
smaller than 7 and 8 and has all needed applications built in. Billions of
programs and applications for free and compatibility with ALL hardware and
Linux is unfamiliar and cumbersome and calls for installation of the most
elementary applications that people take for grant in XP. In Linux one has
to be searching hard for ONE needed program and XP has tens of that same
kind of program, mostly free.
The only problem here is Microsoft that has to keep the money machine in
motion and for that they have to kill the compatibility of XP, pressing
software makers to create programs to not to be compatible with it.
Even though there is no end in sight for the use of XP.
C'mon nobody needs the Linux aggravation!
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
DRALHSR GBC: Will this work on my laptop tablet running Windows Tablet XP? Thank you
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 :-)
Aloan Moreira: can the menu be at the bottom? why is it up there? me no likes!
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
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!
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
icenesINC: Yes, but who still uses Windows XP?
Joe lowrider: windows xp it going dead no more it end so it still older
old computer then put in in there Linux???` but any gb mebory

Peter Snizek: @Neocasco: Thanks for the hints! will try :-)
Dennis Conners: Does this work with the 64 bit system?
Yamil Montes: Were you born in 1969
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
Jake Duggan: lol Spaz for usr name
Shane L: 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.
Johnny Valdes: Hi spatry.... can I pod cast and stream music with this distro?
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.
fahad mahbub: Can u plz give me your XFCE tutorial video link, I can`t find that.
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...
Oscar Wolfzrat: great review Spatry
Camoweasel: 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.
TRENCH Lara: Good job ! I installed on two of my 7 Computers and they are Operating
Great so Far ; I love it !
daniel germán rodríguez fernández: Okey that is great..! I will dwonload it! Thanks. Daniel.
