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!
Greatest distro ever found! My old (6 years) computers work painless. I especially appreciate the wifi connection which was never working with other distro. ~pam
