I've installed LXLE on several computers, including the troublesome Asus X205TA (Eclectica 16.04.1 definitely is a smoother installation).
I've even put this on a Sony Vaio UX180P micro-PC, where it runs smoother than Windows XP.
I think this is a very solid distribution with a good selection of included programs and an ease of use that benefits the novice.
I am new to Linux. Switched to Linux from WinXP. I was trying to find a suitable Linux distro for my old laptop (Acer Travelmate with Celeron M, 1.5 GHz and 2gb RAM). Tried many distros and am very impressed with LXLE. Will use LXLE even if I buy a new laptop with the latest system resources. Great work done by LXLE team. Wish all the best for the future versions too and hope you will continue with the same great work in the future.
Indeed, and it'll be a much better educational tool than the almost uselessly limited W7 Starter: all the included applications on (probably) a smaller ISO. ~Admiral Yaarxaath
