waswestkan: The distro I downloaded had the whisker menu already operating after I installed the OS. However I prefer do things how I have always done them with Windows.. Create folders on the desktop to sort and organize my shortcuts to. The only time Use the windows menu is to copy the properties of a newly installed application to paste into a desktop short cut, if one was made automatically.
waswestkan: I have decided to use Linux Lite on my dell mini 9 as a XP replacement. Since the SSD in the mini has problems, Installed LL on a USB drive. Worked well last night with dell wife card, but today when I tried it out today it doesn't.. So I shut the computer down, and booted off the LL live USB, and confirm that the card is working as I used it to connect to the web. Just put in the OS USB stick booted it up, no WiFi. The mini 9 doesn't have anything that lights up to confirm that the card is turned on , and the computer has always booted up with the card in the state it was when last shut down with other versions of Linux. I have been able to place a Linux OS on a USB stick, by booting the computer from live stick, and clicking on the install icon on the desktop for sever other versions of Linux with no problems. Work worked for Mint , but mint is my second choice.

christian nrx: how do i disable password function for getting new programs/applications? i'm considering linux but i don't want to do this every time.
Bgtracker Group: Nice video. You look like the character Ace Ventura lol :D
Richey Goolsby: Thank you for the for the video. I installed Linux Lite on an old XP machine that got a virus and destroyed the OS. The computer was sitting in my closet for the last four years before I got around to figuring out how to fix it. Linux Lite is awesome! It gave new new life to an old machine.
Mike T: Getting my new Linux Lite install all settled in, software setup, etc. I gotta say, it's awesome. So far, it's rock solid. I'm a bit more knowledgable about Linux, but I find the more "lean and stable" nature of it to be very desirable.
Still a few more milestones to pass, but it looks like I might be able to finally say goodbye to Windows for good!
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 peripherals. 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!
