When I decided to review Linux Lite this time around I was slightly perturbed by the fact that there isn't a UEFI image available and without much software installed I wonder what would make somebody choose Linux Lite over Linux Mint.
Even if you are using older hardware Linux Mint has an XFCE version or even the MATE version meaning that it would be every bit as Light as Linux Lite.
Therefore I needed something that would give Linux Lite an edge over Linux Mint.
Then I stumbled across the Control Centre and the Software Installer and these applications make Linux Lite a worthy Linux distribution.
Linux Lite is every bit as good a Linux Mint and highly recommended especially on older or less powerful hardware.
It is a worthy replacement for Windows XP, Vista and even Windows 7.
Thankyou for reading.
In this article I’ve tried to put into words the areas where Linux can still use some improvement. I am a happy Linux user and am thankful for the outstanding community that surrounds the operating system, its components and features. I repeat what I said at the beginning of this article – these apparent disadvantages may actually become strengths when viewed from the proper perspective or will soon be.
Until then, let’s keep supporting each other as we learn and help Linux grow and spread. Feel free to leave your comments or questions using the form below – we look forward to hearing from you!
As you may know, ArchEX is an Arch Linux flavor that uses LXDE as the default desktop environment to provide a lightweight system, usable on old, low-power computers.
The latest version available is ArchEX Build 151117, which has been updated to use the latest Arch Linux version available and Kernel 4.2.5, among others. Also, a new text-based installer has been implemented, this one permitting the users to choose the default language during installation and GParted has been added, for an easier partition management.
Slackware: GCC 5.2.0 multilib
One of these days Solus 1.0 will be released, and all the anticipation will be gone. This is not that date, but it’s exciting nonetheless. We have some more news about the new version of Budgie, tentatively called Next, and about various package updates.
