Linux Lite, as its name suggests, is a lightweight Linux distribution that can be easily used by a beginner or an expert. The developers of this open source operating system are here with the latest Linux Lite 4.4 Final. Based on Ubuntu 18.04.2, this release is powered by Linux kernel 4.15.0-45.
For existing Lite users, this release might not be exciting as it seems like simply a way to refresh the ISO images and inculcate the minor changes and fixes made over the past few months.
The developers have written on the project’s official blog that there were few changes made from the first Release Candidate to the final release. “As such, this 4.4 Final is basically the RC1 with only the wallpaper changed,” the post added.
Smaller changes to the OS include the updated Papirus icon theme, the addition of Sound Juicer CD ripper, the fixing of the volume level bug, and the removal of Google Plus links. Also, the project has moved from SourceForge’s servers to OSDN.
Finally, Linux Lite 4.4 ships with the usual set of updated software packages, including Firefox 65.0, VLC 3.0.4, GIMP 2.10.8, LibreOffice 18.104.22.168, and Thunderbird 60.4.0.
For the users new to the world of Linux Lite, the preferred requirements for running the OS on a PC include 1.5GHz+ CPU, 1GB+ RAM, and 20GB of free storage. You can also get it up and running on a 1GHz PC and 768MB RAM, but a bit more power is recommended for a smooth performance.
