First impressions using Elementary Linux? Well, we couldn’t install the software on our old Lenovo ThinkPad. Installation failed straight after the Elementary logo. We successfully installed Ubuntu 16.04 and Linux mint on the same machine with the same USB Bootable device. So, first impressions not great.
We moved our Elementary installation on to a very old HP530 and absolutely no problems. Fast boot up, average installation time and…… Very nice looking! BUT….. We found that Elemetary Loki was locking up often and not as smooth as Linux Mint. Keeping in mind that we are running a system on the same HP laptop with 2GB memory.
