Project Description

By producing an easy to use Linux based Operating System, we hope that people will discover just how simple it can be to use Linux Lite.

Linux Lite is free for everyone to use and share, and suitable for people who are new to Linux or for people who want a lightweight environment that is also fully functional.

Linux Lite is based on the Ubuntu LTS series giving you 5 years of support per major release.

The following software is included: LibreOffice Suite, VLC Media Player, Firefox Web Browser, Thunderbird Email, Gimp Image Editor, Lite Themes, Lite User Manager, Lite Software, Lite Sounds, Lite Tweaks, Lite Welcome, Lite Manual, Lite Sources, Lite Updates Notify, Lite Upgrade, Whiskermenu and more.

Laptop/Ultrabook/Netbook users: If the screen locks during Live mode, type 'linux' into the user box and click on the Login button (no password required)

TL;DR - Quite fast, even on 4k monitor with old desktop. I was rehabbing an old dell desktop, purchased in 2010. It has a very low end graphics card, just enough to handle the 4k LG screen it is attached to. Now, this is why I write a review. After trying Mint and Ubuntu. The installs would not go through, live de would not boot or bootloader got corrupted. Lost about 2 hours time in downloading and trying several fixes. Then, found Linux Lite and it just worked! Netflix and Amazon video just fine. As this desktop was basically to be used as a TV, during this Corona outbreak. Thank you! - Oakland California, March 2020.

Very good distro . Light on resources . Upgrading is simple . Good for VM .
This is the most stylish light weight distro you can get . Every other light weight distro is UGLY in look . Whereas Linux Lite is quite Beautiful . Also it's the only distro I could smoothly run on a virtual machine . Every other distro failed due to various reasons . Lastly easy to upgrade . I upgraded from 4.6 to 4.8 literally with a few clicks .
32 bit hardware is not supported . That's not a big issue now
