Linux Lite 2.4 (32-bit)

Linux Lite is suitable for people who are new to Linux, especially those migrating from Microsoft Windows. It is based on the Ubuntu LTS series of releases, which means it has a support cycle of five years from the date of release. The desktop is clean and simple, with easy access to the menus, system settings, and configuration options. The strengths of Linux Lite include:

  • Ease of use
  • Simple, intuitive design
  • Works on old hardware
