excellent distro, light and powerful, i installed 5.4 trinity/acquarius 32 bit on my 2004 packard bell laptop...installed midori as browser and everything ok....did not get working stuff using 7/XP or lubuntu/xubuntu/puppy and still q4os supplies 32 bit support and in any case underneath there is all the power and solidity of Debian
just a small problem with the wifi configuration that I had to do from terminal
i upgraded from 3.13 which i installed years ago and still runs smoothly and seems much improved to me
Dell Inspirion 9400, a top of the line heavy laptop computer called a ¨desktop replacement¨, because it is very solidly built and it is very heavy.
Intel Core2 Duo (August 2006)
Designed for Windows XP + ¨Windows Vista Capable¨:)
The computer was manufactured in January 2007, so it is almost 17 years old.
I switched from XP to Lubuntu 32 bit in 2018, but that is because I assumed it was 32 bit, when it was in fact a 64 bit.
It was running slow with Lubuntu 32 bit, but it was very stable, and I used it as a daily driver for at least two years.
When Lubuntu stopped 32 bit support, I loaded Linux Lite, which worked beautifully.
Because the graphics could not work with what I needed to do for my job, I had to retire it.
I finally decided I would try and rescue it and see if I might try another distribution.
I plan to use it as my living room music computer.
I tried to install latest version of Linux Lite, because when I tried an update of Linux Lite after having stored the laptop for a year, it did not want to update. Linux Lite installation froze several times despite me trying various ways to get it to ¨learn¨ and ¨unfreeze¨ itself.
I put Bodhi in it, and it would not even get off the ground.
I tried Q4OS, and behold, it works.
I am giving it a 9, not because it is so wonderful, but because if I give it an 8, it will be akin to Linux Lite, but Linux Lite no longer works with it, and I cannot rate it lower than Bodhi, since Bodhi did not work.
So 9 it is:)
I have been using Linux as my daily driver since 2009, so I guess I am no longer a newbie:)
I only use Windows or Apple if it is forced upon me by someone else.
I installed Q4OS on my 32 bit old desktop with only 2 GB ram and it is running very well. it automatically detected my epson printer and scanner I am using latest chromium browser on it and my web browsing experience is quiet good my browser is running very fast and web page download speed is also very good. Q4OS linux is very fast and intelligent linux distros. I tested many other linux distros but I wanted such distro that is minimal,fast and stable. I had only one problem with it that when I installed it with windows on dual boot system my grub menu showed me two choices to boot from either windows or Q4OS but after upgrade when I restarted my system I was offered no choice to boot from and directly booted into Q4OS. overall I am enjoying Q4OS ...
