Finally an Xfce desktop that looks modern! The look and feel are outstanding in every way! The included tools are very good, well organized and the default applications are very reasonable. I was drawn to Lite as a way to increase battery life on my HP laptop.

Battery life is a little better but the main thing that made it a keeper was how well it looks and feels. The distro is very solid and reliable too!

Lite Linux is soooooo underrated ....I've tried so many distros including the newest and top downloaded ones but none, I repeat, NONE are so clean and easy to use on top of been a very good looking distro as well having "out of the box" a beautiful theme in dark colors.
Its so complete that no mater what pc or laptop you install, it will be fully ready to use no mater what WIFI card you have or printer you're using...it will just works....Its amazing.
