Did this video help you?

FoxeoGames: Is that the Seinfeld poofy pirate shirt?

MasterControl90: still based on ubuntu, still too hardware hungry for old PCs

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?

Derek Dickerson: this distro is way to far out of date

DJNevernOfficial: A few question: 1. Can I remove things from the menu, like the Steam homepage link and some install scripts? 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 too)?

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.

Steven Spivey: yes

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. Ivan

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. 

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: 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.

Steven Spivey: how do u change linux lite to look like windows 7

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

genmac1: Ok, with 6 days left of support for XP I could use some help. My computer is a 2007 Dell Vostro 1500 with a Core 2 Duo 1.4 ghz CPU, 1GB of DDR2 RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce 8600M. Does my computer have enough power to run Ubuntu?

skiniman lawless: hey i wanna knw how to run .exe files on linux plz help

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 course.

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 !!!

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 

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.

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.

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 

Alpha Lion: I hear that this linux lite is fast. Would it be ideal for gaming?

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. 

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.

Anormalus: Does Dekorator run on this distribution ? 

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...

DRALHSR GBC: Will this work on my laptop tablet running Windows Tablet XP? Thank you

Aloan Moreira: can the menu be at the bottom? why is it up there? me no likes!

Peter Snizek: @Neocasco: Thanks for the hints! will try :-)

daniel germán rodríguez fernández: Okey that is great..! I will dwonload it! Thanks. Daniel.

Kyle Norris: Your video quality has dropped a bit since I first started watching your stuff was wondering why

nishant rathore: the best thing is that u should install it alongside winxp 

Rudi Roux: When it comes to Linux Google is your friend.

Alex Zaggo: very good, I'm downloading for testing on an old pentium 4, 1gb ram ddr400

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 stink mean ram it ok fine hard drive nothing wrong but one thing xp windows need remove thow out how it going work it sthere still there how yu do that????

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 anymore..) Sounds familiar? So I switched to Xubuntu 12.04... running fine now!

Philip Branch: I installed Linux Mint on my HP-mini (WIN XP)Now i can,t get wifi to connect with my Actiontec (Fios) router.Please help.pbar.

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.

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 

elf150hz: Easy and lite.

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!!

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!
