One of the great thing about Linux compared to Windows. Is adaptability. Let say you have a older computer that is running window ME. You can’t use that operating system any more because it is out dated and none of the internet browser will work on it. You can’t put windows 7 or windows 8 on it because it doesn’t have the resources to run those Windows OS. However, there are Linux OS out there that will run on it. One such OS is “Lubuntu”
Lubuntu focus on speed and energy-efficiency. Because of this, Lubuntu has very low hardware requirements. and all the modern browser will work plus you can install and office suites so you can continue to use that older computer. We check out Lubuntu on an older computer and a new computer. While it did run faster on the newer computer it was useable on the older one. Unlike with Microsoft you just about have to run out and buy a new computer when they come out with a new OS but not with Linux.
Lubuntu is a fast and lightweight operating system. You can burn Lubuntu to a CD and try it out before you install it if you like. It may not run very fast on the cd but once you install it on the Hard drive you will see improvement. We did find that Lubuntu work perfect on Laptops with it low resources.
