Can someone recommend.....

Postby wardie2437 » Thu Jun 07, 2012 7:44 pm

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

Wardie : :lol:

Gnome 3 isn't lightweight.

Try XCFE for a desktop instead. Or if it can't cope, LXDE instead.
i5 4440 3.1Ghz, Asus H87M-E motherboard, 8GB DDR3, 2GB DDR5 nVidia card, 2x500GB Seagate hd, Coolermaster 750W PSU running Mint 16 MATE and Win7

eeepc 1015PX, 1.66 Ghz Intel atom processor, 2 GB DDR3, 320 GB hd, Mint 14 MATE. Fan needs fixing.
