I take it that your use of the word 'apt' was an unintentional pun! :lol:

It was whilst I was typing it but once I saw it it became intentional glad you liked it

OK, think I have found a distribution I can finally live with - Zorin 12 64-bit Ultimate disappeared up itself while I was removing apps I did not care to have - just watch the OS disappear in no time at all! (Reminds me of the time for the fun of it purchased Dragon Dictate Solo for £4.95 from Electronic Boutique that later became GAME. Going a long time back, had Windows 95 and Office 95 - decided to uninstall Dragon Dictate and it promptly removed Office '95 - what a great product!). I really would have liked Debian Jessie (8.3.0) to use but after install neither root or user password would work. Fedora 24 workstation just left me with a blinking cursor dash 3 inches from the top of the screen after bootsplash of the mobo logo! Finally, minor glitch when choosing location caused the installer to crash but I get a weather App that picks up Sheffield UK! Another fail not just for Zorin but Fedora 24 in live mode uses the same app and the same fail! There is no Zeitgeist, no Evolution Calendar hogging resources! I truly wish Zorin would have considered sticking to Xfce or LXDE for its main distributions - I am sure they could have worked something out. I feel it is goodnight to Zorin and Good Morning to Voyager 16.04:

Adios Amigos - but before I go - something far more precious I need to share with you: https://youtu.be/ycUZN6kuUO8

performance depend on specs of your computer or laptop
and a from mechanical harddrive to a solid state hard drive makes any system faster

I'm afraid my penchant is for standard hard drives - can't cope with SSD config! :lol:

Well let's hope Zorin 12 Lite can match this!:

Cool.

Found this on Distrowatch today also, https://distrowatch.com/ or https://peppermintos.com/

Still no Zorin 12 Lite after more than 2 months from the announcement of a "sneak peek of Zorin OS 12 Lite within the next few weeks" from the Zorin Blog at http://zoringroup.com/blog/2017/03/21/z ... downloads/ .......

I've gone back to Linux Mint!

Makulu Flash which has xfce with a simple compiz on/off is really astounding for such a lightweight distribution - also Stacer is pretty good dashboard and includes lots of configurable system settings:

Just to add the reason why the hard disk space showing 1.7 out of 1.7 is that it was in live DVD mode. ;) :D

Well I thought I would replace SolydX 8 for Makulu Flash 32-bit - no joy when I discovered that it is a PAE version! I could manage to get it to run when using the 'forcepae' command but it took almost 20 minutes to get to the desktop and was taking far too long in its responses from the Optical Drive, so I gave up! It is a pity that only SolydX community editions appear to be the only distro producing 32-bit non-PAE isos so that older kit can breathe new life again. So Jacque if you get to read this - PLEASE produce a non-PAE OS!
