    Re: Good Old Lubuntu 16.04

    One of the useful advantages of the true lightweight Linux distros is they will run great on most of my 8 and 10 year old computers without problems.
    When Lubuntu fails to work which isn't very offer in my personal experience I then will install Antix Linux which will run on most any computer I have installed it on.

    The main thing is to use what works for you.

    Over the years, I have saved a lot of money by buying used computers or having them given to me by frustrated former users.
    The cost of learning linux was cheap too. And the cost of installing linux instead of buying windows or mac os is so much cheaper too!
    I really feel good about linux. And these days, I still run all my favorite windows programs on linux anyhow!

    Xfce works well for me on semi-old to older hardware. I find that it is the most consistent DE and it's light on ressources compared to Unity, Gnome3, KDE ect.

    Linux Mint Xfce 18.1 runs smoothly on my 8 years old Dell Latitude laptop with 2GB of RAM and Intel Core 2 processor.

    What if I tell you there is a distribution that is much lighter than Lubuntu?

    http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=torios

    Give it a try

    @amjjaward
    I have heard of ToriOS and haven't given it a try yet but plan on it in the near future.

    Yep Puppy is A-OK and one of my favorites also.

    Wife uses LM 18 Xfce on her 2006 Acer laptop with 2GB of RAM and Intel Core 2 processor it does run pretty well.
