Tried many many linux distros on my old HP Compaq laptop and they were always slow, slow -- until LXLE. What a great little distro for old non-pae machines. It not only is just as fast now as my desktop PC but brings in consistent 100% wireless reception from my residential free hotspot. I only pared down a few things and added xfce4 desktop for fun and all is very stable. I hope you'll keep up the good work into the upcoming 14.04 LTS platform as I want to start financial support in 2014. Your forums are tops too!
Thanks to LXLE 32bit machines over 10 years old are still usable. ~Nikolas
