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
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.
HoRzeNTarI: What music do you use as background audio in your videos?
Bgtracker Studios: Nice video. You look like the character Ace Ventura lol :D
marktupper1959 .: I'm using win xp sp3. I use photoshop 6.1, office 97, firefox, free anti
virus and skype and it all works and I can watch and do anything I
want........I'm guessing the later windows and Linux are great... but xp
does it all...
Laurence Thornber: i like the mac like login screen on linux lite 2.0 but i think Lubuntu
14.04.1 LTS is best for XP users.
fds: Hey, Spatry. How do you access touchpad settings in xfce?
Albert Zhang: +waswestkan I said DOWNLOAD the ISO
FORMETOKNOWONLY: My suggestion to people if you are not very tech savvy to think twice
before using this for dual boot purposes.
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!
Jack Yelland: Hey, so I've recently downloaded Linux 1.0.8, but I have no sound? I've
checked the TV / HDMI Cable / Master Volume - But there's still nothing?
Can anyone tell me why this is? This is the first time I've used Linux, and
I'd really appreciate the help :)
Devin Hepburn: Some of the newer xp computers shiped with a 64 bit vsrsion due to the core
2 processor inside there computer.
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.
christian gagnon: 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.
FoxeoGames: Is that the Seinfeld poofy pirate shirt?
Kenny Ackerson: Lol people use linux on the desktop? lmfao.

Claude Rill: I've insalled LL on my old Dell Inspiron B120 laptop. Very happy with it so
far. So I tried putting it on my Dell Dimension 2400 desktop. NO go. when
it finally boots up all the text is a garbled mess, can't understand
anything. I did click the install icon but all the text in the installation
procedure is the same garbled mess. I'd like to keep the same OS on both
computers. Did have Lubuntu on both but could never get wifi working on the
laptop in Lubuntu.
Ovi Matis: please tell me how to install linux lite on a usb flash, i`d
tried UNetbootin but it does sin have this distribution of linux so i
selected another distribution and that didn`t go so well, i own an
Emachines em350, and i think this OS would be the best for my netbook,
please help me. thank you
zeppy13131: If they want Windows users to be comfortable with it, shouldn't they put
the taskbar at the bottom rather than the top?
Rudi Roux: When it comes to Linux Google is your friend.
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.
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
ImTheDaveman: Awesome review monsieur Spatry! I like the fact its all crammed into a CD
Mike V: 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!
Yamil Montes: Were you born in 1969
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?
Joe Johnston: I love it and it is my favorite distro and I have tried a lot of them!
Thank you for the great review.
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...
Henrique Bach: lubuntu with taskbar in top?
DJ Kill Code: 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
justwayfarer: I downloaded Linux Lite, did the updates but have a problem. The graphics
look odd at times and youtube video graphics are really messed up looking.
Can anyone suggest what I need to do?
Domin Goens: BULLcrap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Steven Spivey: yes

Alex Zaggo: very good, I'm downloading for testing on an old pentium 4, 1gb ram ddr400
Johnny Valdes: Hi spatry.... can I pod cast and stream music with this distro?
nishant rathore: the best thing is that u should install it alongside winxp
Randomgameplaysss: Great video!! I love Ubuntu, now I'm looking to test more Distros. I will
share this video on my facebook, to show my friends why they should use
Linux. People need to know, people need to wake up!!!
Thanks again, I'm following you!!
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
Clifford Browning: I created a partition with xubuntu alongside my xp on a 12 year old
computer. I havent been sorting out the xubuntu because I have been
setting up the xp but at first glance the xp seems to run lighter on the
cpu. I know that the linux lite uses the xfce like xubuntu. My question
is, is linux lite likely to run using less resources than xubuntu and will
it use less than the xp?
Simeon Dimitrievski: : )
Philip Branch: I installed Linux Mint on my HP-mini (WIN XP)Now i can,t get wifi to
