a LITE edition of linux using GNOME 3.

My wife has a clunky old lappy, which is running something called Windows 7.

I use Mint 13, however I'm wondering of there is sort of lightweight edition. All she uses it for are Facebook, MS Word, YouTube and a bit of email.

Best Regards

Gnome 3 isn't lightweight.

Try XCFE for a desktop instead. Or if it can't cope, LXDE instead.
