2020-01-13 NEWDistribution Release: Linux Lite 4.8
Jerry Bezencon has announced the release of Linux Lite 4.8, a new stable version of the project's beginner-friendly distribution based on Ubuntu 18.04 and featuring the Xfce desktop: "Linux Lite 4.8 final is now available for download and installation. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome all Windows 7 people who have come here to find a simple, fast and free alternative to Windows 7 which has reached its end of life and no longer provides security updates. Linux Lite makes the transition to a Linux-based operating system by offering a full, Microsoft-compatible office suite, familiar software like Firefox, Chrome, Teamviewer, VLC as well as full system back-up tools, a comprehensive and easy-to-follow help manual to guide you on your journey, Steam so you can keep playing your Windows games and so much more familiar software. Our desktop is laid out just like it is in Windows with a Start Menu to the left and a tray to the right with volume, network and calendar options, with familiar desktop icons that take you exactly where you want to go on your system."
