Linux Mint 12 LXDE was released last week and I finally got around to trying it out. I’m impressed. This lightweight offering from the Linux Mint project takes it’s lightweight applications seriously. The only ‘heavy’ application being Firefox.
An experience like this would take me hours in ArchLinux but installing LM is simple and fast. This does LXDE justice, and honestly If I didn’t know better I’d think I was using XFCE. The default appearance and panels look modern and simple at the same time.
Kinda makes me wish I had an low powered netbook or laptop lying around.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy low resources solution check out Linux Mint 12 LXDE
I’m going to try it on my netbook. Bye-bye Easy Peasy OS!
