Easy to use, Windows XP replacement for older PC hardware. Based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with LInux Lite specific repository and software. They have an active user forum for tips and support. Looks like a very good candidate to try out!

Looking forward to summer and planning how to organize this users group. Preliminary thoughts:

  • Creating something over on Meetup.com - there are a few other technical groups in Roanoke, but not a Linux specific group
  • Already have a page over on Google+ - Would virtual meetings using Hangouts be of interest?
  • Possibly schedule regular meetings on IRC?

Please post comments and suggestions!

Don't like the default computer name given when you installed your Linux distro? You can rename it by editing two files: /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname
